Specialties

Dr. Gopal G Krishna 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.

My first visit, he was great...took notes, had a sense of humor, gave me information, and patient. Other visits he remembered me and tried to help by getting me into a program, is not intimidating so I'm feel free to ask questions, makes me aware of what I should do but in a compassionate way. I just think very highly of this doctor, respect him, and would recommend him with no reservations. (A friend who came with me the first time also really liked him.)
