Dr. Liem S Oei 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.

I met Dr. Oei when I was 11 years old, he was the only doctor in the area that would take me as a patient, because of my age. I was so lucky to have met him when I did. My protein levels were off the charts. He told me at one point my protein levels were the highest he'd ever seen (88,000+). He diagnosed my Lupus and Kidney Disease very quickly and started treating both very aggressively. I cannot say enough positive things about him. My health is in great condition and has been for quite some time, thanks to Dr. Oei!

Dr. Oei is the best doctor I've ever been to. I have been seeing him for the past 20 years. I just can't imagine going to someone else. He's extremely warm, caring, and compassionate; he never fails to have a smile on his face. He's from an older breed of physicians who works so hard at what he does. Not only that, but he's extremely intelligent, and even though he has an accent, he explains your situation in a way that is completely understandable. His knowledge of medicine, compassion, and bedside manner are the reasons he is my physician of choice. I do not know what I am going to do if he retires. It will be a sad day indeed.
