Nephrology

26 million American adults have kidney disease… and most don’t know it.

Nephrology specialists at Pentucket Medical bring not only their expertise to the treatment of kidney diseases, but also the attitude that you, the patient, deserve the very best. Effective treatment of multi-faceted diseases like electrolyte disorders, hypertension, and end-stage renal disease require a team approach.

Your nephrology specialist understands that your Primary Care Clinician plays a key role in managing your health concerns and with our integrated System of Care, your nephrologist is in constant contact with your Primary Care Clinician. Our Electronic Medical Record allows those who are caring for you to have consistently accurate, current health information for you.

Pentucket Medical recognizes that it can be scary when you’re facing something as complicated as kidney disease. There is much that can be done to preserve kidney function and prevent problems if we all work together and take the right steps to prevent complications. 

Care Team

Joshua Tarkan, MD, Emily Dulude, MD, and Sangeeta S. Nadkarni, MD comprise Merrimack Valley’s best trained, most experienced and well supported Nephrology group.

Mass General Brigham community practices are here for you during these challenging times, and our staff are available in the office for most appointment types. Virtual visits by smartphone, computer, with webcam, or telephone are now available for urgent appointments.
