Our practice is positioned to be the leading private provider of nephrology services in Hawaii. When entering into private practice, it is important to select a group that is not only concerned with adapting to the changes in healthcare, but also a group that has the size and the resources to adapt effectively. Although our physicians already have well established goodwill in Hawaii, we believe that we are only at the dawn of our potential. Hawaii holds significant opportunities for private nephrologists and our nephrologists are at the forefront of each.
