Expert care for the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the kidneys.
Nephrology at Reliant Medical Group gives expert care for the diagnosis and treatment of kidney diseases.
Reliant Medical Group nephrologists are well-trained specialists. They have all completed a three-year residency in internal medicine, followed by at least two years of a nephrology fellowship. To give the best care possible, our nephrologists often work closely with other experts. These may include doctors that specialize in hormones, the heart, hospital medicine, and more.
Patients usually see a nephrologist for:
- Acute and chronic kidney disease
- Hematuria (blood in the urine)
- Kidney failure
- Chronic urinary tract infections (UTIs)
- Renal artery stenosis
- Kidney stones
- Electrolyte disorders (acid/base imbalances)
- Pre-transplant evaluation
- Glomerular and vascular disorders
- Polycystic kidney disease
For patients needing dialysis, treatment is available at Saint Vincent Hospital. The hospital is located right near the offices of the Division of Nephrology. We also provide educational programs for dialysis patients and their families.
Growing up in the Boston area with both a father and a grandfather who were physicians, it wasn’t surprising that Dr. Felipe Fernandez del Castillo also decided to devote his life to helping others.
