I was an active patient with [...] and visited Dr. Liebman for a second opinion about my kidney care plan. I was so pleased that I will be switching to UR as my primary nephrologist. I consider the additional travel a minor Inconvenience which is easily washed away with the improved confidence I have with UR.
