Multi-disciplinary Care Kidney Clinic (MCKC)
This inter-professional outpatient clinic supports patients with advanced kidney disease.
We help you to prepare, manage and make the treatment choices that are best for you. The goals of the clinic are to reduce progression of kidney disease, monitor, and manage the multi system complications and co-morbid complications of advanced kidney disease, and to prepare patients and their families for renal replacement therapies; dialysis or pre-emptive transplantation, or conservative management care.
The care team includes nephrologist, registered nurse, dietician, pharmacist, and social worker. We partner with you, your family, care providers and community teams to provide you with information, education, interventions and support, to help you feel your best.
Referrals should be faxed directly to the nephrologist’s office.
