We offer world-class clinical services to patients with complex kidney diseases and disorders of blood pressure and circulation. Our goal is to provide optimal and individualized care for patients with these problems. Our nephrologists provide renal consultation, renal biopsy, and evaluation and management of hypertension and other kidney disorders. Our Hypertension specialists believe that hypertension is not a single disease, and that it has different mechanisms in different individuals. Thus, each patient is treated based on his/her individual physical/hormonal/biochemical profile, with every attempt made to find curable or reversible forms of hypertension.
