Durham Nephrology Associates is a medical group whose doctors, nurse practitioners, nurses and staff have been devoted to the welfare of patients for more than 30 years. We specialize in caring for people with kidney diseases and high blood pressure. These diseases can be silent, not causing any pain, decreased urination, or other symptoms, until they have progressed to failure. Our goals include stopping or slowing the progression of an illness to prevent damage. Since some patients’ disease can worsen even with optimal medical care, we also devote ourselves to helping people physically and mentally prepare for the possibility of future dialysis treatments and transplantation. If the kidneys stop working, then we will be there to help with long term dialysis and transplantation needs. Continuous high quality health care is the goal. In order to be an effective partner with you or your loved ones, we believe in the importance of good communication. Our doctors and staff are accessible, and we encourage you to contact us for further explanation when things remain unclear.
