We have specialists to treat Kidney Disease.

Nephrology is the branch of medicine concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the kidneys. Doctors who specialize in kidney disease are called nephrologists. Other health professionals who treat kidney problems include primary care doctors, pediatricians, transplant specialists and urologists.

Covenant Health is home to exceptional nephrologists. For physician referrals, please call (865) 541-4500.
