Welcome to our Hypertension Center
Our Hypertension Center is recognized as a referral center for difficult hypertension (HTN) cases in our community. We are certified by the American Society of Hypertension (ASH) as a Hypertension Center.
As nephrologists, we understand the important role of the kidneys and the neuro-hormonal and cardiovascular systems in the regulation of blood pressure. Patients who develop elevated blood pressure are thought to have imbalances in those systems. Many of the medications needed to treat HTN act through the kidneys (diuretics, ACE inhibitors and others) and nephrologists have ample experience with these medications. Through tight coordination with primary care providers and other specialists (and facilitated communication through Epic, our unified electronic system) we aim at controlling blood pressure in our community and reducing its impact both on a public health and individual levels.
Our Hypertension Center focuses mostly on the importance of lifestyle modifications and diet. A registered dietitian is part of our team and provides free counseling for our patients with HTN. We also have excellent communication with our sleep lab to serve our patients with HTN and sleep apnea.
Our group offers experience and diversity. Our physicians will accommodate patients who need to be seen quickly based on each referring physician's request.
