The result of a merger of Eastern Nephrology Associates and Southeastern Nephrology Associates, these kidney specialists deliver the highest quality nephrology, kidney dialysis, kidney transplant and hypertension care via 14 offices, more than 40 dialysis centers and two vascular access centers.
The practice contains highly trained board certified nephrologists, interventional nephrologists, transplant nephrologists, kidney disease certified advanced practice providers, nurses, lab technicians, and medical assistants. It has its own fully integrated laboratory, transplant care team, two (2) vascular access centers, and a nationally recognized clinical research program. The practice is keenly focused on Value Based Care, deploying numerous care coordinators and best practice algorithms to improve the patient’s clinical outcomes while also conserving scarce health care resources.
Eastern Nephrology Associates has acquired Carolina Kidney & Vascular, PA, with offices in Goldsboro and Clinton, NC.
Carolina Kidney & Vascular was founded by Robert Dunmire, MD, providing services in general, interventional and pediatric nephrology. Also in the practice is general nephrologist Thejaswini "TJ" Kempananjappa Kaggere, MD. The practice currently manages care at ten dialysis centers in the surrounding areas.
Eastern Nephrology will be combining its Goldsboro services with Carolina Kidney and Vascular under the Eastern Nephrology umbrella through offices in Goldsboro and Clinton.
