About Us

Who We Are

Nephrology Associates of Syracuse, PC began as a two physician practice in 1978, and has continued to grow and develop ever since. Our practice has six physicians, three nurse practitioners, and four physician assistants. Our physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants work closely and collaboratively to care for the ongoing needs of our patients, and provide the highest level of quality care.

Our physicians provide consultative services, and have admitting privileges at Crouse Hospital and at St. Joseph’s Hospital, and work together with the local dialysis centers to manage the changing health care needs of our patients.

Our practice operates an in-house lab that is open from 7:20 am – 4:00 pm to provide convenient and efficient laboratory services for our patients. Our physicians see patients in our main office located at 1304 Buckley Road, Suite 200, Syracuse, NY 13212. We also provide monthly nephrology physician care at satellite offices located in Camillus, Fayetteville, Fulton and Vernon. Our physicians are available at both Crouse Hospital and St. Joseph’s Hospital each week, and also rotate along with our nurse practitioners to care for our dialysis patients at the local dialysis centers located in Central New York.

Our Mission

Our Vision

With an eye towards the future, we will anticipate and address the needs of patients suffering from renal disease as a worthy and necessary challenge. Our efforts to increase awareness and early detection will naturally continue as well. Our unwavering dedication to patient well-being keeps our practice in the forefront, consistently setting a standard of excellence in the field of nephrology.

“Patient education is a key part of managing kidney disease. We encourage all of our patients to read about their conditions and ask us questions about options for managing their nephrology issues.”
