Since its inception in 2009, this full-service clinic for adults with polycystic kidney disease (PKD). is the first specialized clinic for adult PKD patients in Alabama, and one of only a handful in the U.S.
The PKD clinic offers diagnostic evaluation and management of major PKD complications either as a full service to newly diagnosed PKD patients or a complement to existing care provided by a primary care physician or nephrologist. To coordinate and provide care for extrarenal PKD manifestations, the clinic interacts with a network of subspecialists interested in management of specific PKD complications. In addition, this clinic serves as a gateway to relevant clinical research trials.
To schedule an appointment or to refer a patient to the PKD clinic, call 205-996-6374. To ensure assignment to the PKD clinic (staffed by Drs. Dana Rizk and Michal Mrug), please specify “polycystic kidney disease” as a reason for the evaluation.
