Frequently Asked Questions
How long will it take me to be seen?
Once a complete referral is received from your primary care provider, you’ll be called to schedule an initial visit with Nephrology within two weeks. Typically, we are able to see new patients within three to four weeks of receiving the referral for routine care.
Do I need an escort?
Unless your mobility is greatly diminished or other extenuating circumstances are present, you will not need an escort for your initial visit with our nephrologists. If you are scheduled for a kidney biopsy, we will request you bring an escort.
Where is the Nephrology Clinic located?
We are on the third floor of the Healthy Communities Building within the Internal Medicine Clinic, 3900 Ambassador Drive.
Why are new labs needed before every visit?
Blood and urine tests provide our nephrologists with vital information on your blood cell counts and chemistry that enables them to accurately diagnose and treat kidney disease and adjust medications properly. We generally need recent labs done within a week of the clinic visit.
