We recognize that each patient is different and that their goals are unique. Our physicians, advanced practitioner professionals, nurses and staff are trained to create a partnership with each patient so that the patient’s individual goals become the foundation of the treatment plan. ENA also recognizes that living with chronic illness is difficult and can be confusing. Therefore, we offer numerous services that manage the full continuum of kidney disease under “one roof”. Whether the focus is on medical management, dialysis, transplant or vascular access care, ENA aims to provide everything a patient may need. However, if a patient needs something that is not offered internally, we will help locate the best outside resource and continue to advocate on the patient’s behalf.
ENA’s efforts start even before a patient relationship is established. Despite the severity of kidney disease, kidney patients may not even realize that they are sick. ENA recognizes the importance of early detection and deploys resources into the communities we serve to promote disease awareness among the general population. Though advocacy and partnership with community resources, ENA aims to improve the health and well-being of the communities in which we all live.
Your first visit with an ENA provider will include a physical examination and evaluation of your medical history including your current problem, your family’s medical history, and current medications. We will also obtain the necessary urine and blood tests at this visit.
In preparing for your appointment, we ask that you:
If you’re having lab work done, we have collection stations conveniently located at each of our offices. Days and hours of collection can vary by office, so be sure to check your office’s schedule here.
Prior to your draw session, please note these points about lab work:
Patients with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) are among the most vulnerable people in America. And, people with End State Kidney Disease (ESKD) can become some of the most medically complex patients and their treatment can be very costly.
Please fill out and print the New Patient Questionnaire and bring it with you to your first appointment.
Our Notice of Privacy Practices describes how medical information about you may be used and disclosed as well as how you can get access to this information. Please review this information carefully. If you have any questions, please contact your ENA office.
