Specialties

Dr. Berne Yee 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.

Dr. Yee is the Best Nephrologist in Phoenix!

Dr. Yee has seen me through renal failure, peritoneal dialysis, and a recent kidney transplant. He is personable, caring, and very knowledgeable. Physicians just don't get any better than him!

DOCTORS THE WAY THEY SHOULD BE

I joke with Dr. Yee that I was his first patient; actually I was one of his first when he came to his Phoenix practice in 1986. He kept me alive for ten years on dialysis and through three kidney transplants. Dr. Yee is caring, compassionate, and knowledgeable. He should be, and frequently is, top of the top on the Phoenix top doctors list. My only issue is that he's such a top doc that it's sometimes difficult for old timers such as me to get appointments :-) You can't go wrong with him.
