Branson Nephrology & Dialysis understands that sometimes battling kidney disease can also coincide with cancer treatment. John Martinez, MD, and Dwight Zabel, MD, are board certified nephrologists who have been treating patients in southwest Missouri and northwest Arkansas since 2002. They are able to coordinate care with your cancer care specialist. Together with Johnna Manna, PA-C, Lavonne Burrows, APRN, and Robert Muller, NP-C, their team provides a full spectrum of services, including chronic kidney disease (CKD) education and advanced care planning for patients approaching kidney failure. Their help begins in the physician’s office, where they create an individualized care plan to slow the progression of kidney disease and closely manage the patient’s chronic medical problems. Their office provides education and counseling about many different therapy options, including transplantation. If the patient chooses one of their many dialysis therapies, there are three outpatient dialysis facilities where providers perform weekly rounds to continue to optimize their health: Branson Dialysis, Branson West Kidney Center and Harrison Dialysis. The decision making, therapy options and collaboration for patients with kidney disease and cancer has always involved careful exploration to ensure it is consistent with the patient’s personal preferences. Let Dr. Martinez and Dr. Zabel guide you with tools and resources to have success through your journey.
