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 have been chronically ill for over 20 years and Dr, Wilmer is the best doctor I have ever worked with for any ailment. He is very kind, genuinely concerned about me, and always does his best to make me feel comfortable with my kidney treatment. He sits patiently and listens to my concerns, answers all questions, and I don't feel rushed while I am there. His nurse Jan is absolutely fabulous - she treats you like you are family. I have worked with other specialists from his office on occasion and they are just as wonderful as he is. If you find yourself needing a nephrologist, don't pass up the opportunity to see Dr. Wilmer . . . you won't be disappointed!
My mother has/had PKD and was so sick for so long, she needed to have a transplant and I was a perfect match. She was scared about the surgery and her survival rate considering how sick she was. Dr Wilmer walked her through the whole process as if he where a family member. He has been so sweet and kind to her and always making her feel important! I can not say enough good things about this man! My mother now has her life back because of Dr Wilmer!
