PATIENT-CENTERED CARE PARTNERSHIPS
At Kidney & Hypertension Associates, we don't base our treatment and management plans on "what everyone else is doing". In fact, our practice is purposely structured to allow for a very different approach to chronic kidney disease, acute kidney injury, hypertension, and other forms of kidney dysfunction than the conventional medical model provides.
The KHA team views each patient as an individual, with unique needs and circumstances that will impact how their case can best be addressed. Our expert doctors and nurse practitioners strive to offer the most personalized, state-of-the-art care strategies, technologies, prescription medications, and treatment options available to all of their patients, regardless of the type of healthcare coverage they have.
At Kidney & Hypertension Associates, we also make recommendations or adjustments to your care plan based on the way your body is feeling and functioning, and not on a corporate checklist. Perhaps most importantly, once you're part of the KHA family, we keep that relationship with you to provide support through every phase of your care.
If you're a healthcare provider who wishes to refer a patient to Kidney & Hypertension Associates, please contact our administration office at (985) 893-0911
