Dr. David M Alderman 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.

As a Provider I did need his help to care for a pt. He was very unprofessional, rude and bothered by my call . We did need to contact different nephrologist who fortunately was kind and helped us to take care of pt. I would never be comfortable to refer any pt to this type of drs who is not even willing to help a colleague to take care of a mutual pt. Would you?

He seems to take forever before actually doing tests on you. I was in kidney failure for 4 weeks before any defining tests were done.
