Associates of Kentuckiana provides high quality, compassionate care to
patients with kidney disorders and
hypertension (high blood pressure). We care for people who have
chronic kidney disease (CKD), advanced
kidney failure including end stage renal disease (ESRD), and patients
dialysis. We also manage kidney
transplant recipients in partnership with the transplant team at
University of Kentucky Transplant Center. In addition to UK
Transplant Facility patients, we also follow care of patients from
other regional transplant facilities including IU and Jewish Hospital.
Our Nephrologists offer comprehensive treatment for patients with
kidney diseases. Our physicians can diagnose and oversee the care for
many kidney problems and arrange for additional diagnostic tests
including imaging and biopsies when required by the specific
Nephrologists help patients to stop or slow the progress of the
disease, keep blood pressure controlled, relieve patients’ symptoms
and improve their quality of life. While the Nephrologists may not
actually perform the procedure, we will work as part of your renal
care team to order, read, or interpret labs, ultrasounds, and other
tests to best care for you and your kidney health. We work with your
primary care physician, dietician, vascular access surgeon, as well as
dialysis and transplant teams if necessary. [Top]

Renal care management
Our goal is to
help patients obtain optimal renal function as assessed by calculated
glomerular filtration rate (GFR) utilizing a wide array of treatment
choices and by developing a personalized treatment plan for each
More than 26 million Americans have chronic kidney
disease (CKD) and most don’t know it. The
Foundation’s Kidney Early Evaluation
Program (KEEP®) offers free screenings for those at risk–anyone 18 years
and older with high blood pressure, diabetes or a family history of these
conditions or kidney disease. The KEEP program is finding kidney disease
at the earliest stage possible.
KEEP provides three simple tests that determine kidney function.
Participants receive a comprehensive health risk appraisal, blood pressure
measurement, blood and urine testing and the opportunity to discuss their
health and review results with onsite clinicians. Learn more and
