Our mission is to provide the highest level of care for patients with kidney and pancreas diseases.
Dr. Reza Allamehzadeh will aim to diagnose kidney diseases early and provide measures to prevent progression. His priority is always the patients' wellbeing by always putting the patients first and maintaining compassion.
We provide excellent and quality care for patients who have received kidney and pancreas transplant or are in the process of receiving it.
It takes a highly trained and specialized transplant physician to manage this group of patients who require the proper hand holding and comforting during their use of immunosuppressive medications, which may present with unusual symptoms.
