Dr. Joyce M Gonin 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.
- 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.

I've seen Dr. Gonin for more than 10 years, and she recently opened her own private practice for nephrology and internal medicine on Massachusetts Avenue in Washington DC. She also visits patients on kidney dialysis at several locations, and has privileges at local hospitals. She takes care of my kidney transplant and so many other things related to that. Dr. Gonin has saved my life, literally, several times. Like other transplant patients, I have a compromised immune system, which opens me up to illness. She's treated me for diseases I've contracted due to my work overseas in Haiti and Turkey, through several asthma episodes necessitating hospitalization, and several elective surgeries for broken bones, and knee replacements. She is really amazing - a caring and thorough doctor with a style you cannot find easily in this day and age.
Dr. G. does what years of visiting other doctors could not do...within a few months of visiting her for the first time: I am on fewer medications, my blood pressure is controlled and in acceptable ranges, and my diabetes has gone away! Thank you Dr!You are the very bestesst and Heaven sent.The best thing I ever did is try vsiting a new doctor even though I was a scared Transplant patient.
I AM A KIDNEY TRANSPLANT PATIENT WHO HAS BEEN TREATED BY MULTIPLE NERPHOLOGISTS FROM DIALYSIS TO TRANSPLANT AND THEREAFTER. DR. GONIN IS BY FAR THE BEST DOCTOR I HAVE BEEN ASSOCIATED WITH IN BOTH DIAGNOSING SYSTEMS AND PROVIDING FOLLOW-UP CARE, EVEN AT HER OWN PERSONAL EXPENSE. SHE IS CLEAR AND PERCISE IN EXPRESSING HERSELF AND MAKES YOU FEEL THAT YOU ARE IN SAFE, INTERESTED AND CARING HANDS.
