Referrals to Our Kidney Specialists

Physicians often discover kidney problems through a blood or urine test, or recognize that you might be at risk of kidney disease from high blood pressure. If a problem is identified, it’s important for you to see a nephrologist, a physician who specializes in kidney care.

Our physicians are experts in the management of hypertension (high blood pressure), chronic kidney disease and dialysis (a treatment for chronic kidney disease). We also work closely with the kidney transplant team and will ensure that patients evaluated for transplantation appropriately. Because kidney disease often affects older adults, our doctors have expertise in the special needs that elderly patients may have.

Being referred to a kidney specialist doesn’t always mean your condition is serious. But expert evaluation and guidance may keep a mild problem from getting worse. We’re happy to accept physician referrals in all cases.

If you would like to refer a patient, please call Lahey’s concierge physician referral line at 781-744-8899.
