Specialties

Dr. Tim E Taber 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.

He gave me his cell number!

Dr Taber is in my opinion the best nephrologist hands down. Calm and collected with a good sense of humor. He listens to you speak and he actually gave me his cell number...that's a first. His staff and the entire transplant team were wonderful. I heard a rumor that he actually put himself on dialysis so he could understand end stage renal disease from a patient's perspective..it must have helped because he has empathy for his patients. Ive been sick since I was 18 and am 37 now, Ive seen many doctors and specialists, Dr Taber is a GREAT DOCTOR.
