Very knowledgeable & easy to talk with. I didn't feel like i was "bothering" him with my questions & i didn't feel "talked down to" like some doctors. He gave me time to ask questions & wasn't in a huge hurry. Pleasant, kind doctor who treats his patients respectfully like people who have lives.

Need to talk to people as if a child could understand I am not in the medical field and do not understand the medical terminology.

Dr. was very courteous and respectful.

This was my first visit to this provider. The staff was very welcoming and explained the necessary forms and procedures. The nurse was very courteous and efficient performing the preliminary checks and taking personal information to update my chart. There was only a short wait before the doctor came in and introduced himself. The doctor took a lot of time explaining my current medical condition and explained various ways to maintain the condition. He took time to answer our questions. A follow-up appt. was made and he suggested I meet with a nutrition nurse to explain dietary methods to regulate the condition. I was very pleased with the doctor and the interaction between us.

This was my first visit with a kidney Doctor. Dr. Denshaw was very good at explaining the current health of my kidneys and what I may expect in the future. He also provided tips on what I can do to maximize my chances of keeping my kidneys working at full capacity.
