Patient-Focused Care and Support
Dr Richard Baer is a specialist General Physician and a Nephrologist (Kidney Specialist.) As a General Physician, he can help care for patients with many medical conditions and assess each patient as a whole. Nephrology is the management of kidney disease and Dr Baer can therefore provide specialised renal care.

Dr Baer knows that you must treat the patient and not just the disease. An important component of a consultation with Dr Baer will include patient-directed education and information.
