    How was your appointment with Dr. Erlbaum?

    Dec 16, 2017
    I would highly recommend Dr. Alan Erlbaum. Dr. Erlbaum's bedside manner is wonderful, he always relieves my fears about my kidney disease when I see him; he also ran many tests that no other Nephrologist had run on me before so he could figure out the most likely cause of my disease. His staff is awesome and I never have to wait long in the waiting room. I truly like that I get a print out of what occured at my visit and instructions for new meds or test, it's nice to refer back too if needed.
