    The DaVita.com physician website http://www.davita.com/physicians) offers
kidney specialists, primary care physicians and other specialists resources
such as: patient educational handouts
http://www.davita.com/physicians/resources/index.cfm), coding and billing
information http://www.davita.com/physicians/resources/?id=2151), links to
DaVita(R) services, medical and clinical news relevant to their practices, and
information on medical conferences
http://www.davita.com/physicians/resources/?id=2150). In addition, renal
doctors will also find a number of clinical tools such as a GFR calculator
that measures glomerular filtration rate to determine a patient's stage of CKD
and a KTV calculator, which indicates adequacy of dialysis or how effective
dialysis is at cleaning a patient's blood.

DaVita Chief Medical Officer, Allen R. Nissenson, M.D., F.A.C.P., F.A.S.N. and Emeritus Professor of Medicine at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA states, "DaVita is committed to improving the lives of patients with kidney disease. DaVita.com's physician website is another tool to enable our dedicated team of nephrologists to continue to maintain our outstanding clinical outcomes. It is a resource to help the nephrologists and thus maintain quality care for our patients."

Jason Walker, Director of DaVita.com, understands the need for a dedicated physician site and says, "We set out to build this new area on DaVita.com because there are so few centralized sites on the web to make the life of the busy nephrologist easier and provide the tools needed in their practice."

DaVita.com is the premier online source for kidney disease and dialysis information. DaVita.com provides educational articles about chronic kidney disease (http://www.davita.com/kidney-disease), dialysis (http://www.davita.com/dialysis), diet and nutrition (http://www.davita.com/diet-and-nutrition); videos (http://davita.feedroom.com), more than 500 kidney-friendly recipes (http://www.davita.com/recipes) and tools like DaVita Diet Helper (http://www.davita.com/diethelper), an online interactive meal planner for kidney patients, to learn about the disease and optimize their lives with chronic kidney disease and on dialysis.
