Inpatient Nephrology Consultation

During your hospital stay, your doctor, an attending physician or another specialist may consult a nephrologist, or kidney specialist, to provide additional recommendations.

  • This consultation will include a medical history, physical exam and appropriate blood work to determine the cause of your kidney-related issues and to adequately treat your medical condition. 
  • Our nephrologists also will manage the care of dialysis patients who are admitted to the hospital for any issues.
  • Our nephrologists will follow you on a routine basis while you are in the hospital and may ask you to follow up on an outpatient basis, as needed.
