Mission and History

Did You Know? Diabetes is the most common cause of kidney failure in the U.S.


Dallas Nephrology Associates (DNA) is a national leader in providing comprehensive care for patients with kidney disease, transplants, and hypertension. Since 1971, DNA remains a trusted source of information for quality kidney care. Our mission is to always treat patients with respect and compassion. Together we help individuals and their families face kidney disease with hope and dignity.


Since 1971, Dallas Nephrology Associates has been providing expert care and evaluation of kidney disorders to patients and referring physicians. Our priority and commitment to patients is to deliver personalized, state-of-the-art care in a comfortable and convenient setting. Our job is to learn as much as we can about your particular kidney problem, explain it to you and either treat you to correct the problem or help you maintain your kidney function as long as possible. Over the past four decades DNA has grown into one of the nation’s largest groups of practicing nephrologists. Our team of dedicated physicians includes Board Certified or Board Eligible physicians in Nephrology and Internal Medicine, hypertension specialists, interventional radiologists and nephrologists, along with an outstanding support staff of nurse practitioners, physician assistants, registered nurses, laboratory and x-ray technologists, dietitians, social workers and administrative personnel. Several of our physicians have served as directors of nephrology and transplant departments or nephrology laboratories at major Dallas hospitals, including Baylor University Medical Center, Methodist Medical Center, Medical City Dallas, Texas Health Presbyterian Hospitals and Doctors Hospital. We strive to make continuing education a priority and to investigate and incorporate the latest procedures and techniques in kidney care.
