Specialties

Dr. Benjamin M Igwemezie has the following 2 specialties

  • Nephrology

    A nephrologist is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the kidneys or renal system.
    A nephrologist will determine through urine analysis, blood test, X-ray, sonogram, or kidney biopsy how well the kidneys are functioning and will then prescribe a special diet and exercise program, medication or dialysis - a process by which a machine filters the blood when the kidney is no longer capable of doing so.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

I really like this doctor, he stays current about medication and the most recent research on the kidney and high blood pressure. He spends lots of time talking with me and explaining clearly the problem and possible solutions.

Excellent Doctor

Dr. Igwemezie is a very knowledgable doctor. His experiences with kidney failure and his understanding of the approaches to slow down this process is amazing. He clearly understands not only the physical aspects of the kidney but how to use different prescriptions to maintain the patient during this process. He is very serious about his work but also has a great sence of humor.
