Dr. Kwan only had this one review that was very bad. I don't know what went wrong with that patient. I do know, however, that he restored my kidney function and kept me out of dialysis. He was VERY concerned about my condition. When my kidney function started working again, he was practically floating on air, when he told me. He was both professional and very caring. In fact, he was wonderful! I would recommend Dr. Kwan to anyone needing a caring doctor in his field. Saw in hospital.

Dr.Kwan let infection spread into my guts. After repeated attempts to get him to put me on antibiotics, he would not come look at my stomach he had a nurse take a pic and send to him. Where he decided I didn't need them. Two days later my incision exploded from infection. During this time I was called by UAB with a donor kidney for me. I lost due to the infection. Since he has lied more than a child. To bad there the only nephrologist close. Stay away at all costs. If you're in GADSDEN. Im sorry
