Rockford Nephrology Associates
Nephrology is the study of the kidneys and related diseases, including hypertension. At Rockford Nephrology Associates, our goal is to serve nephrology patients with quality care and continuing education.
Our medical staff includes 10 board-certified nephrologists and three Nurse Practitioners, all working exclusively in nephrology. In addition to our main office on Roxbury Road, we provide outpatient appointments at several convenient satellite locations and visit inpatients at eight area hospitals.
Our comprehensive care includes consultations and follow-up visits, blood pressure monitoring, kidney disease education and dialysis services. Additionally, our physicians may diagnose and manage hypertension, kidney disease and situations that could lead to disease. Our interventional nephrologists serve dialysis patients in an outpatient setting to ensure the best possible care.
Because one of our goals is to empower patients to learn about kidney disease, Rockford Nephrology, with the help of DaVita, offers free kidney education classes, aimed specifically at patients diagnosed with Stage 3, Stage 4 and Stage 5 chronic kidney disease, on treatment options and delaying progression. Classes are held at the Rockford main office and cover everything patients need to know about disease progression and healthy lifestyles. “RNA cares for your kidneys.”
