Specialties

Dr. David N Matsumura 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.

Excellent physician

Dr Matsumura is the most caring and compassionate physician I have ever been treated by and I have multiple health issues, so have far too much experience with doctors. He genuinely cares and spends as much time needed, whether in the hospital or in the office, to ensure that all my physical and emotional needs are met. All of his patients at the dialysis center where I am seen love him, and the staff are equally impressed by him. I am so thankful to have him as my nephrologist and primary care physician. He is the best!
