Patient Care Setting



Dr. Wing is Associate Professor of Medicine in the Division of Nephrology. His clinical practice is geared toward the entire breadth of general nephrology. His approach emphasizes patient autonomy and practical practical solutions to disease management issues. For every patient he seeks to balance the issues of health, functional status, and quality of life.


Over 70% of hemodialysis patients start dialysis using a hemodialysis catheter for vascular access despite clear evidence that using hemodialysis catheters, rather than AV fistulas or grafts, result in worsened patient health outcomes, worsened quality of life, and increased health costs. I use non-interventional research methods, such as retrospective cohort analysis, to illuminate approaches toward improving hemodialysis access.
