A Few Doctors We Like

We are trying to put a list together of Doctors who specialize in the treatment of Bartter’s and Gitelman’s Syndrome. The few names we have listed here are of Doctors who really helped at least one of us.

Friendly doctorPLEASE do not expect these doctors to give you free long distance treatment advice.
They are listed so you can make an appointment to see them for treatment within their office if you are lucky enough to live nearby.

If you do not live near any of these doctors, try contacting the nearest teaching hospital. A teaching hospital is associated with a medical school. The doctors in such facilities are most likely up to date in their treatment knowledge.

If you do not live near any of the doctors on our list, and you are not near a teaching hospital, seek out opinions from local doctors you know for a referral to the nephrologist in your area with the best reputation. Some people have also been successful with endocrinologists.

So far we have Doctors in these locations;

Alabama, California, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Michigan, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Washington
