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.

Today was my first appointment with Dr.Boiskin, my first impression is excellent- very knowledgeable and easy to talk to specialist! I strongly believe I am in good hands...
After kaiser operated on me in 2004, I was not only blessed with incontinentcy but also a urinary track infection every 2 weeks. I could not feel the infection, I just get this funny smell. If it was missed, it would go into the Kidneys and I get full blown kidney infections until I finally was diagnosed with chronic kidney disease. This is where Doctor Boiskin came in. After evaluating the situation, he but me on a medication that wiped out my urinary track infections, something that many Doctors over eight years could not do. In mu opinion, Dr. Boiskin is a Ggenius.
