When should you consider a Nephrologist?
Your primary care physician may refer you to Naples Nephrology for treatment.  If you do not have a primary care physician, you should consider contacting Naples Nephrology if you experience signs and/or symptoms that could be related to kidney disease, such as swelling in the legs, recurrent kidney stones or electrolyte problems.  Extremely difficult to control hypertension is also managed by a nephrologist.  If you are on dialysis or nearing end stage kidney disease and want to be considered for a kidney transplant, early referral is essential to avoid unwanted delays.  Look for a Nephrologist who is board certified and is involved in transplant nephrology and patient education.


Why choose Naples Nephrology?
At Naples Nephrology, we diagnose the problem, educate the patient and help to make the necessary lifestyle adjustments to help slow the progression of kidney failure.  If the disease has progressed to end stage, then we encourage therapies which parallel your lifestyle prior to illness.


All our doctors are available for legal case review for cases in or out of state.  Thru phone, e-mail or in person, they can lend their valuable insight administratively and clinically.  Sometimes obtaining a non-biased opinion is invaluable.  Let our doctors put you at ease as they review the case with you.
