In 1988 Dr. Kenneth Lempert, MD, MPH, Partner Emeritus, founded Nephrology Consultants of Northwest Ohio. Over the past three decades, the practice has expanded with additional physicians, office locations, hospital affiliations and dialysis units. Through our academic affiliation with University of Toledo College of Medicine, our physicians serve as Clinical Assistant Professors to medical students, residents and fellows. Although we’ve grown exponentially, we continue to be dedicated to providing compassionate, state-of-the-art medical care to each and every patient.
