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.

Dr Barrett has been my physician since his arrival at U.K. from Northwestern. He is not only brilliant, but extremely personable and comes through the door with a smile on his face and a story or incident about subjects that we have in common. He is my third gastroenterologist at U.K. since I have been a patient there, and the blessing continues with extraordinary care and interest from my physician.
Dr. Barrett has a great personality, but beyond that there aren't many redeeming qualities. He doesnt communicate with my other doctors (even though they make themselves readily available when I have a medical issue Im not the type to go to the doctor unless Im close to death). I've routinely waited up to an hour in his waiting room, his nurse Lita does not communicate well and refuses to provide a copy of my lab results. I will wait a week and then I have to call numerous times just to get the lab results verbally. Per his nurse, if I want the lab results, I need to submit something in writing to obtain a copy - she states this is Northwestern's policy - which can't be true, as the rest of my doctors are at Northwestern and they all will fax over or mail my lab results.
Dr. Barrett has a great attitude towards my 19 year old, he is very professional but also very witty.HE has given us options for Crohn's disease that no one has ever offered, it has been a relief to find a Dr. that wants to get off some medications and not continue to destroy my son's body.we dont mind driving the 6 hours round trip 4 if traffic is not bad.
