Dr. Rachel B Fissell 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.

Great Doctor!

Whenever I see Dr. Fissell she is always pleasant and caring of any problems her patients may be having and very interested in what they have to say and especially their concerns at the time. She always wants to know about anything you need to have explained and makes sure that you understand everything that is going on with your dialysis and asks how you are feeling during your treatments while you are there. I really like her as my Dr.
