About Us

Weill Cornell Medicine's nephrology program is proud to partner with NewYork-Presbyterian, ranked #10 in the nation and #1 in New York by US News and World Report.

Our excellence is the fruit of a philosophy that a synergistic relationship between Nephrology and Hypertension, Pediatric Nephrology, Transplantation Medicine, Surgery and Pathology, Rogosin Institute and Nephrology services at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, is essential for creating new patient advances that improve outcomes and educate the next generation of physicians and physician-scientists.

Our nephrology, transplantation, and hypertension specialists, all conveniently located in New York City’s Upper East Side, provide compassionate, comprehensive and state-of-the-art care to every patient afflicted with kidney disease, high blood pressure, requiring a kidney or pancreas transplant, or having previously undergone transplantation. We aim to provide optimal and individualized care for patients with these problems. To this end, our nephrologists provide renal consultation, renal biopsy, as well as evaluation and management of hypertension and other kidney disorders. Our hypertension specialists believe hypertension is not the same disease in every patient, and that it has different mechanisms in different individuals. Our transplant physicians provide all aspects of transplant medicine care. Each patient is treated based on his/her individual profile, with every attempt made to personalize care.

What Our Patients Are Saying


"Dr. Chevalier is a genuinely caring doctor that takes the time with his patients and listens to all of my concerns. I have been battling high blood pressure for years and most doctors couldn’t get it under control which has left me anxious. Dr Chevalier got my blood pressure under control and monitored my kidney function. He always called me with my results and explained all of my labs to me in a way in which I could understand. His demeanor with patients is the kindest I have seen thus far."

He has answered all my many questions completely. He has done this in a respectful and patient manner. When I recently had an issue with my insurance company, Dr. Lee interceded on my behalf and with his help, I was able to obtain the medication I needed. My experience with him has been beyond excellent. He is a fine doctor and a true gentleman."
