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.

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.

My relative has suffered with kidney disease for most of his life. He had two transplants and had also been on dialysis for many years between his transplants. He's now unfortunately back on dialysis and although this has been difficult he feels very confident in the care he has received over the years. Dr. Hurwitz recently called him at home to check on him. He listens and has a very good bedside manor. I Highly recommend this doctor.
My family member is waiting for a kidney organ donation and Dr Hurwitz has been instrumental in caring for my family member while we patiently wait. He is warm and welcoming, professional and highly knowledgable about all facets and complexities with anything involving kidney health. Every three months my family member goes and I tag along and never feel like I am not a partner in this serious situation of waiting for a donation. We are so fortunate to have Dr Hurwitz in the North Country which is a bit remote compared to the Albany region, but I do strongly feel we are in the best hands working with Dr Hurwitz. He always makes time for our questions too, even by email. Thanks for all you do!
Dr. Hurwitz is a phenomenal doctor. I never feel rushed. He's always attentive, kind ancestry considerate. He understands me, doesn't great me like I'm crazy. He has done for me in the past six months than they did for me in 3 years in vermont. He's the best doctor I've had in years. So happy I've found him
Dr. Hurwitz takes the time to explain the issues, challenges and options. He also takes the time to listen, and never rushes you. He is compassionate and eager to improve your health, and is easily available outside of regular appointments (e.g by email, phone, etc...). I would highly recommend Dr. Hurwitz.
