Division of Nephrology & Hypertension
All of our physicians are board certified in both internal medicine and nephrology. Many of our physicians are national and international leaders in the field of kidney disease and high blood pressure. In addition to clinical practice, we also have responsibilities in teaching and research.

Drexel Nephrology is a prestigious practice in Philadelphia. Our major practice sites include Hahnemann University Hospital and Manayunk (Jamestown Road). We provide high-quality care for patients with high blood pressure, diabetic kidney disease, chronic kidney disease, and kidney stones.
