Dr. Syed K Masood has the following 2 specialties
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.

I feel very fortunate to have found such a skilled, caring nephrologist. This man genuinely cares about his patients & is always accessible, even after hours. His treatment is very thorough, based on preventitive measures & common sense.He syncs his treatment with my primary Dr,who is in a diifferent office. He & Dr Khalil work very well together for me. He is indeed a very caring person.
I was first seen by Dr. Masood when I was admitted into Chandler Regional Hospital through the E.R. He was asked to consult because I was in mild renal failure and then on three other hospitalizations he again consulted and then became my Nephrologist. Dr. Masood was always kind, informative, honest and treated me as a real person, not a number. He made me realize that my problem was life threatening and needed follow up care. Because of his care and his partners care, I am alive today. I would recommend this doctor to everyone in need of help with their kidneys. He is not listed as working with Chandler hospital on here but he is on call at this hospital.
