Nephrology

A medical specialty focusing on overall kidney health and abnormalities.

The kidneys remove waste and excess fluid from the blood, maintain your body’s electrolyte balance, and release hormones with functions such as managing blood pressure.

The nephrology services offered through Touchette Regional Hospital encompass diagnosing causes and levels of kidney failure, injuries, infections, and stones.

Patients can be seen if they need medical treatment due to symptoms of kidney disease or other conditions, such as:

  • Acute kidney disease
  • Chronic renal failure
  • Kidney infections
  • Polycystic kidney disease

Blood and urine tests ordered by your doctor will help assess your kidney function. If further evaluation or testing is needed make an appointment to come see us. 

Our Nephrologist is located at Archview Medical Center, 2071 Goose Lake Road in Sauget just off Interstate 255.

Rashid Dalal, MD
