Ensuring that her patients thoroughly understand their conditions, Dr. Zacharek and her staff emphasize the importance of patient education.  Because Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), and many of the problems associated with it are oftentimes asymptomatic, it becomes vitally important for everyone to understand how and why these conditions occur, and for those currently afflicted to know how to prevent their conditions from worsening.  Thus, information on CKD and associated conditions has been provided for easy patient accessibility.  The conditions below are further explained by following the links:
