    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.

GREAT DOCTOR

Dr. Bourla is an excellent and caring physician. He always has plenty of time to answer questons and is able to explain things in an easily understandable manner. Great diagnostician. Also, his medical staff is wonderful. However, some of the clerical and administrative staff, particularly Maria, could use an attitude adjustment. Maria is extremely rude and condescending to patients. However, her demeanor magically changes when one of the doctors is within earshot.

Great Doctor, but some of the support staff, particularly Maria, can be very snippy (sometimes, just plain nasty)
