Specialties

Dr. Peter B Hines 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.

Dr. Hines was very helpful in explaining and helping me understand the information he was relaying regarding my brother-in-law. He asked my opinion on some matters and let me decide what was best for Don. A very caring doctor.

Outstanding Doc!

I am a dialysis patient and would highly recommend Dr. Hines for kidney monitoring and treatment. He is patient, listens well, and provides explanations in as detailed and logical manner as you can handle. Our problem solving sessions have always ended up with a practical solution. He's the best!
