The kidneys are of the main organs that intervene in blood pressure control and most of kidney diseases can lead to high blood pressure. Uncontrolled hypertension will undoubted lead to chronic kidney disease progression.
With the addition of Dr. Fidel Barrantes, board certified hypertension specialist, Renal Medicine Associates has started a hypertension clinic to focus on care of patients who have difficult to control hypertension (patients who are in 3 medications without achieving adequate blood pressure control), white-coat hypertension, masked-hypertension, poorly controlled hypertension, stress-related hypertension, all secondary and hormonal causes of hypertension, and hypertension complicating pregnancy.
Our hypertension clinic focus is to provide a multidisciplinary approach. Our Hypertension clinic is currently receiving new patients.
