Specialties

Dr. Brent L Lechner has the following 3 specialties

  • Pediatric Nephrology
  • 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.

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Excellent Doctor

Dr. Lechner has been my daughter's nephrologist for over ten years, he relates to her well, is very friendly, and well-loved by everyone I have spoken too. He obviously loves what he does and always provides easy to understand excellent patient education. Great sense of humor! When I contact him about any issue he is very prompt in replying.

Five Stars

Dr. Lechner works at Walter Reed; however, he will make ever effort to see my son at the closest hospital. He is very caring and relates to children. He also explains to the parents in layman terms not Doctor speak.
