Your Kidney Doctor Specialist: How To Have A Valuable Appointment

Episode 094: Your Kidney Doctor Specialist: How To Have A Valuable Appointment. A referral to a kidney doctor specialist is one of the first (and important) steps in taking care of your kidney health and managing your chronic kidney disease. Seeing a new kidney doctor specialist (Nephrologist) about a new health condition can be very overwhelming. And if you’ve already been seeing your kidney doctor specialist, it may not be overwhelming but you might feel that your appointments aren’t going the way you’d like them to. Renal Dietitian Jen Hernandez and Kidney Health Coach James Fabin discuss how to get the most out of your appointment, what questions to ask when diagnosed with kidney disease, and how to take a proactive role in your chronic kidney disease treatment strategy.
