The providers of Sierra Nevada Nephrology Consultants are committed to minimizing the risk of COVID 19 (Coronavirus) infection for all patients.  To assist with this effort, the practice requests that you do not come into the office if you are suffering from fever, cough, or other respiratory symptoms.  Instead, call the office at 775-322-4550 and we will reschedule your appointment for a later date, or work with you to provide care via telemedicine from your home.  If you are experiencing flu like symptoms, we urge you to go to your nearest ER or contact the Washoe County Health Department at 775-328-2427 to determine if you require testing.  You can find more information about the virus and tips for prevention on the CDC website [HERE] or the Washoe County Health Department website [HERE].

About Us

You will only need to give a urine sample on your first visit with us. We look forward to seeing you!

Sierra Nevada Nephrology Consultants (SNNC) is the largest nephrology practice in northern Nevada. We specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of high blood pressure, kidney disease, hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis, as well as the preparation for and treatment of patients requiring kidney transplants.

Northern Nevada is home to one of the largest and fastest growing populations of diabetic patients in the country. Diabetes is a leading contributor to kidney disease, so we are seeing tremendous growth in chronic kidney disease among our residents. SNNC was established to serve this growing population of patients requiring long-term kidney care.

The practice was founded in 1982 and has grown steadily to address our region’s needs becoming the second largest nephrology group practice in the state of Nevada. SNNC has nine physicians and five nurse practitioners serving patients throughout Reno, Sparks, Carson City and the surrounding rural communities.

Our Mission

At Sierra Nevada Nephrology Consultants, we are committed to identifying and treating kidney disease early in its progression. With great courage and integrity, we embrace our responsibility to guide patients in making the right choices for their kidneys and their health, to ensure the best possible quality of life. We accomplish this by valuing people, partnerships, and high-quality performance.
