Nephrologist expands practice at Visalia Medical Clinic

Nephrologist Tariq Javed has expanded his practice at Visalia Medical Clinic and is now accepting new patients.


Dr. Javed is certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine and is a member of the American College of Physicians and the American Society of Nephrology. He completed his nephrology fellowship at the Ochsner Clinic Foundation in New Orleans, where he served as chief fellow, and his internal medicine residency at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York.

A nephrologist treats kidney conditions, and prescribes treatments that may include medication, diet changes or dialysis. Patients are referred to a nephrologist when signs of potential kidney disease are seen, such as blood or protein in the urine, kidney stones, fluid retention leading to swollen legs or ankles, nausea or back pain.

their pain.

A breast reduction can reduce the size and the droopiness. The reduction procedure includes a
