Dr. Muthiyaliah Babu 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.

I wish all doctors were like him.

This office runs like a well oiled machine. The staff is well trained and friendly. Waiting is minimal. He is patient, caring, explains well and listens. If you need a referral or test, they will take care of everything. He is well respected in the medical community. For the past 8 or 9 years, I have received excellent care from Dr. Babu and I would trust him with my life.
