In addition to our experienced, compassionate physicians, the excellent administrative staff and outpatient nurses, we have two superb pediatric nephrology nurses. With many years of expertise, our nurses understand the difficulty that chronic illness presents to the patients and their families. They play a critical role in coordinating care, providing education, guidance and support of patients and families throughout a child’s illness. Compliance with diet and medication is a major issue in the teenage population. Our nurses work closely with these patients, helping to improve their understanding of their medical condition, and promoting better adherence. Good nutrition is important to optimal health and is especially important in kidney disorders. Our pediatric nutritionists, who have expertise in chronic kidney disease, are an integral part of therapy and help to evaluate and counsel our patients. 

Kidney disorders may be associated with problems in other organ systems.  We work in close collaboration with other pediatric specialists to provide the highest level of care. When patients need to see several specialists, we can often coordinate care and office visits, making visits and testing easier for the patient and families.
