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.

Having been to several MD’s, Dr. Sica finally diagnosed my condition. He is very knowledgeable and has years of experience. He even gave me his cell phone number to call him direct to get me through my difficult medication juggling. I would highly recommend him to others. I travel 1 1/2 hours to see him, and he is worth the commute.
He had an emergency had to wait 2hours. Spent very little time with me after long wait. Toldme by blood work results would be bsck to men 2 days. Took 2 werks to get blood eork. Called 4 times. Finally had to have my doctors office call to get results. Whn he called he was very rude. Ipset becsuse my doctors office was rude. When i had questions about meds he prescribed. Again was rude told me he was busy eith other patients. Was very disappointed i had heard he was an incredible doctor. Had to oay extra to see him because he was mot coveted bu my insurance. Very disappointed. Told him i have waited several times because of other peopkes emergencies and asked when will it be my turn. Finally told him not to call back
