Dr. Jorge M Diego has the following 2 specialties
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.
- Infectious Disease
An infectious disease specialist has specialized training in the diagnosis and treatment of contagious diseases.
Infectious diseases, also known as contagious or transmissible diseases, are those that stem from pathogen from a host organism. These infections may spread to other carriers through physical touch, airborne inhalation, bodily fluids or contaminated foods.
Infectious disease specialists identify whether the disease is caused by bacteria, a virus, a fungus or a parasite often through blood tests and then determine what course of treatment, if any, is necessary.

I was referred to Dr Diego by a Hialeah nephrologist when my kidney function became very low. He was instrumental in my care prior to transplant. I will always be very grateful to him for taking the time to explain my situation and stabilize my results prior to transplant. I recommended several friends and family because I trust him. He was very professional and caring. He is an extraordinary human being. Thank you so very much for your care.
I was mesmerized by this man's intellect, charisma and compassion. Even if I am not cured, the ~ 45 minutes that my son and I spent with him were out of htei world. Run..don't walk- to see this man if you have a kidney problem or a problem with infectious diseases. Only regret is that it is too late to clone him
