Catherine Joseph, MD
As a pediatric nephrologist, my goal is to help children with all forms of kidney disease including glomerular disease, tubular disorders, nephrotic syndrome, hypertension, acute kidney injury, chronic kidney disease and renal transplant disorders. In addition to providing excellent clinical care in a team based setting, I hope to empower our patients and their families. As an educator, I am interested in innovative ways in which we can impart medical knowledge to students, residents and fellows.
• Nephrotic syndrome
• Chronic kidney disease
• End Stage Renal Disease / chronic dialysis
• Transitioning from pediatric nephrology to adult-based care
• Health literacy
