Focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the kidney.
Because the kidney performs so many critical functions, nephrologists maintain expertise in primary kidney disorders, but also the management of the systemic consequences of kidney dysfunction. Although the prevention and identification and management of early kidney disease is a large part of general internal medicine practice, nephrologists are usually called upon to assist and manage more complex or advanced nephrologic disorders.
A nephrologist is regularly scheduled at St. Anthony for consultations and referrals. The nephrology clinic is located on the first floor, in the visiting specialist clinic area. Appointments can be made by calling St. Anthony Specialty Clinic at (712) 794-5072.
