Specialties

Dr. Leilani Kaanehe has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

not many choices in Honolulu for Doctor specializing in Kidneys

She is a lovely person who is caring and seems dedicated and knowlegable. It is such a shame her office is managed so terribly. Plan on waiting an hour or more in dirty old office where forced to sit on hard school like chairs and stare at a television set or other patients. I don't think they are computerized as one sees piles and piles of files like you used to see in the 1970 offices. One time the office staff ignored the fact an elderly patient soiled his pants while waiting in the waiting room for a long time, and I had to go complain that the smell was making the rest of us gag. I dread going to the office, but no choices. We have one million people in Hawaii, probably thousands with kidney problems. But only three doctors who specialize in Kidneys. Once Dr Kaanehe came to the office even though she was sick because she knew if she didn't help people out, they would have to wait months for another appointment.It is a very serious problem we have in Honolulu.
