New Patient Information

New Patient Registration

Being a new patient at a specialty clinic can be overwhelming. We strive to make all patients feel at home throughout their entire journey with us.

To save time on your first visit, fill our new patient registration form before your visit. Our staff will receive a copy when you submit it.

Before every visit with The Kidney Experts, you will need to get new labs drawn 1 week before your office visit. This allows our doctors to assess your kidney function.

Please remember to bring your current medications to every visit. We want to keep your records 100% accurate. This includes having your correct medications in our system. More than anything else, it affects the quality of care we can provide you.

We look forward to seeing you at your visit. If you have any questions before your visit, please give us a call at 731-286-1510. You may also contact us through our secure form.
