Dr. Moritz is the best doctor ever. he has been my nephrologist since i was 4/5. he always makes time for questions and will spend the time needed until i understand. his office is very prompt on phone calls back. he deserves a gold star.

It was nice that the Dr could ultrasound her kidneys right there in the office and was able to identify a problem right away instead of having to wait for tests in the future
