About Kidney Care at Baylor Medicine
Baylor Medicine nephrologists provide individualized diagnosis and treatment to patients with diseases related to high blood pressure and the kidney. Our commitment to patient care keep us abreast of new developments in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases that cause kidney disease (e.g., diabetes) or are complications of kidney disease (e.g., hypertension).
We especially emphasize preventive methods to reduce or eliminate the complications of hypertension and kidney diseases. As a patient, your diagnosis and treatment will be planned and tailored for your unique needs. You will receive easy-to-understand explanations about your condition and the underlying mechanisms that cause damage to the kidney or other organs. Our goal is to help you make choices about the best course of action for your care.
We welcome the involvement of members of a patient's family. The objective is to create a support system for the patient's care, to provide an appropriate, effective and, above all, acceptable treatment for the patient. Family members' involvement can promote optimal control, understanding and support of the patient's medical needs.
