Nephrologist Appointment What To Expect - Articles

Nasal Surgery - No More Nose Splints by Nathan M. Patient Expert Posted Sat 23 Aug 2008 3:08pm Good evening everyone (and, if I didn't see you, good morning and good afternoon). I had my first post-operative appointment from my Nasal Septal Reconstruction. I arrived at 3:40 for my 3:45 appointment, and was sent back to the room at 4:45. The doctor came in shortly thereafter and said that it would be a quick procedure. He gave me so ... Read on »
Nephrologist Update: April 7, 2011 by Nathan M. Patient Expert Posted Sun 08 May 2011 7:52am OK - so I'm back again, this weekend, trying to catch up on my blog posting. As you can see, I'm still posting one month in arrears. (I admit, I phrased that last sentence just to use the word "arrears"). I went to see my nephrologist back on April 7 for my normal quarterly appointment. They confirmed that my work-up from January all looke ... Read on »
The Nephrologist as Team Leader by Matt S. Posted Fri 19 Mar 2010 12:00am Within the last 2 years dialysis facilities in the US have been adjusting to the now not-so-new Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Conditions of Coverage.

You have no choice but to be aware by Kamal S. Patient ExpertHealth Maven Posted Thu 12 Sep 2013 9:20pm For people that have kidney disease, in fact, any chronic condition, it is very important to be aware of the condition, the options available and the pros and cons of each. I see so many people on dialysis every day. Unfortunately, many of them rely on others to make their decisions. Some rely on their family, some rely on doctors, some rely on ... Read on »
Back To Work, Back to Doctor's Appointments by Florence F. Patient Expert Posted Sun 07 Sep 2008 2:05am My first day back to work since vacation time was today. My shift went by relatively quickly which was nice. I felt like I could have worked the entire day...but if I did I'm sure I'd have come home, crashed, and wouldn't wake up again until maybe 9pm...not a good idea when it comes to trying to fall asleep again. But, I'm glad to be back...glad ... Read on »
Preventative Foot Care in Hemodialysis Patients by savinglimbs Posted Fri 12 Mar 2010 12:00am Comprehensive care of hemodialysis patients poses a significant challenge for nephrologists. Although protocol driven approaches by hemodialysis centers have significantly improved standardized care, significant gaps remain in overall medical care provided to hemodialysis patients. Admittedly, with improvement in care, mortality rate for dialysi ... Read on »
Monthly Transplant Surgery Appointment, Labs by Jeff .. Patient Expert Posted Wed 08 Oct 2008 6:06pm I had my monthly appointment with the Transplant Surgeon today; the Transplant Nephrologist didn’t have any openings, so I’ll see him next month. I don’t have my labs to post, but did see them. My creatinine is still at 1.2, and my hemoglobin is 11.5. I’m still on Procrit, and checked via email with the Nephrologist; he will stop it when m ...

Clinic Appointment Tomorrow by Florence F. Patient Expert Posted Wed 18 Jun 2008 6:08pm Tomorrow will be my first clinic appointment with my nephrologist, Dr. Richardson. That'll be around noon or 1pm. Tomorrow will also be my appointment with Dr. Bray, the plastic surgeon. I suppose tomorrow will be the day that I get assessed by this plastic surgeon and he'll tell me whether or not such a surgery will be covered by OHIP. I'l ... Read on »
Cardiologist Appointment - June 15, 2010 by Nathan M. Patient Expert Posted Fri 09 Jul 2010 5:23am Today is Thursday, July 08, 2010, and I am sitting at the Nephrologist's office with my company laptop and MS Word as my only friend. I realized that I have not blogged in WAY to long, and that it is time for me to update everyone on what has been going on. Today's post will concern my cardiology appointment from almost a month ago. I'll try to g ... Read on »
July 8: Post-Transplant Appointment by Nathan M. Patient Expert Posted Sun 26 Sep 2010 4:46am I last posted to my blog back in July. It is now almost the end of September. The easiest thing to draw from this is that I am a busy person and do not place a top priority on my blog. The thing you may not think, immediately, is that being healthy does not make for as good of posts (in my opinion). But, as I was at the doctor the last time I ... Read on »
