Eastern Nephrology Associates (ENA) has a passion for clinical research because it affords our patients an opportunity to contribute to the advancement of kidney treatments for future generations and get access to cutting-edge medications and procedures. We have participated in clinical research since 2004 and maintain multiple active studies at any given time. Patients have no obligation to enroll in a clinical trial but ENA’s recognition nationally as an expert in research provides a wealth of opportunity for those patients who are interested. We are currently conducting clinical research in our New Bern, Greenville, Jacksonville, Wilmington, Whiteville and Kinston locations.
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.
