I am currently on the Second Round of Home Peritoneal Dialysis since 2009 . A Kidney transplant in 2014 allowed me a bit over 4 yrs. before having to get back on Dialysis because The transplant never responded as it should have . Dr. Thomas Golper is No. 1 in his field & one word rates my experience with him ..... " Excellent " !

I have been a patient of Dr. Golper's from 2007-2012 as a dialysis patient. He also was took the time to answer any questions/concerns. He is always straight forward and honest even if i did not like it. The Honesty is what made me to trust him with my care completely. He treats patient according to their individual needs and not as if they are all the same. Had a Kidney Transplant in 2012 in another state thanks to him and It lasted 5 years. I am back on Dialysis and he's the Doctor for me.

I saw Dr Golper over 2-3 years and I found it very difficult to develop a working relationship with him. I found it necessary to change nephrologists.
