About Oleh M. Akchurin, M.D., PhD
I love taking care of children with kidney disorders because it is so rewarding to make a difference for the families who have kids with conditions that were untreatable just up until few decades ago. We still have to learn a lot about how to fight better with various kidney diseases and how to provide best possible care to our patients, which is impossible without everyone, including sick children and their families, being part of the team and contributing to our collective effort.
Dr. Akchurin graduated from medical school in Vinnica Medical University in Ukraine. After practicing pediatrics in Ukraine for four years, Dr. Akchurin decided to continue his career in the United States.
