What we do
Here at Kidney & Hypertension Clinic of Alaska, we specialize in the early diagnosis, treatment, and care of patients at risk for, or suffering from, kidney disease and difficult to treat hypertension. We are dedicated to providing quality care for each and every patient. We strive to provide an intensive personalized approach to kidney care. We strongly believe, the true way to make this happen is to work in partnership with you the patient as well as with your other Doctors.

Monitoring kidney function and treatment of chronic kidney disease to reduce complications and slow the progression to kidney failure.
Manage disease states associated with CKD, including anemia, hypertension and diabetes. Adjust treatments, medications, diet and monitoring as changes in kidney function occur.
Selection, monitoring and management of the best dialysis method, including: in-center hemodialysis, home hemodialysis, and peritoneal dialysis. Early evaluation and timely referral for kidney transplantation.
Closely monitor the function of your kidney transplant to improve long-term outcomes and reduce complications by coordinating with transplant centers, adjusting anti-rejection medications, monitoring kidney function and treating complications and associated medical problems.
Achieving optimum blood pressure control reduces the risk of kidney diseases, and death from strokes and heart disease. Treatment of hypertension requires a multifaceted approach: Medications, dietary modification, and an exercise program.
Patients who form stones are at risk of developing stones in the future. Although lithotripsy or surgical removal of stones provides immediate relief, the fundamental treatment requires careful medical evaluation and risk abatement to prevent new stone formation.
