    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.

I met this doctor while in the hospital and he began treating me for a low potassium problem I have had for years. I have been to several doctor's over the years and he is the only one that has aggressively pursued testing to try to find the root cause of the problem to see if it could be corrected instead of just treating it. He is a wonderful doctor and I would highly recommend him.
