Nephrology


Kaiser Permanente Northwest Nephrology (Kidney) Services provides a continuum of care for patients diagnosed with a variety of kidney conditions. Our board-certified specialists treat patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), end stage renal disease (ESRD) including those on dialysis, and ongoing care for patients who have had a kidney transplant.

In collaboration with the nephrologists, a team of nurse care managers, renal dieticians, and medical social workers provide the appropriate evidence-based medical management, education, and intervention to promote optimal health outcomes and improved quality of life.
