Through St. Lawrence Health, we are dedicated to providing state-of-the-art care to people with hypertension and all types of renal (kidney) disorders. Our comprehensive, compassionate care is here to ensure you and your loved ones benefit from our personalized care and experienced nephrology providers.
As the study of kidney function and kidney disease, the preservation of kidney health, and the treatment of kidney disease from diet to medication and renal replacement therapy, nephrology covers a lot of ground. A nephrologist is a medical physician specially trained and licensed in the diagnosis and treatment of kidney disorders. You may hear a nephrologist called a “kidney doctor,” and their education takes many years of schooling and additional training–medical school, three years of residency, and then two (or more) years of training in nephrology.
