Specialties

Dr. Diego H Aviles 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.<br>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.

In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.

Five Stars

Dr. Aviles has been my child's specialist for about 3 years. He has always been very thorough and precise. Due to the medications my child takes for his kidney disorder, we frequently have to get other prescribed medicines approved with Dr. Aviles. When I called children's to have Dr. Aviles contact me, he called me back within moments. He was very kind and concerned about mixing various meds with his kidney meds. He encouraged me to call him anytime we had questions or concerns. He has also taken extra time to double-check things to make sure he's not missing something else that may possibly be affecting my child's health. Overall, we have been very satisfied with this doctor.
