David Isaias Ortiz-Melo
Assistant Professor of Medicine

I enjoy practicing nephrology and taking care of patient with kidney disorders. As a clinician-educator in the Division of Nephrology, my clinical practice mainly focuses on the management of uncontrolled high blood pressure, chronic kidney disease, acute kidney injury and fluid and electrolyte disorders. I have particular interest in the evaluation and management of kidney disease affecting patients with cancer (onco-nephrology). In the inpatient setting, my clinical activities are focused on consultative nephrology and maintenance dialysis.  In the outpatient setting, I see patients two days weekly through the Private Diagnostic Clinic. In addition, I am a rounding nephrologist at three outpatient dialysis units.
