Dr. Chirumamilla is a superior nephrologist. She has kept me alive and off of dialysis since 2006. In 2006 I learned that I only have one functioning kidney and it doesn't function very well. But, Dr. Chirumamilla has prescribed a course of treatment that has kept me off of dialysis. She and her staff at Southside Kidney Specialists are EXCELLENT caregivers and I would recommend them without reservations to anyone with kidney problems!
