Dr. Venkatesh is a fine physician. I would think it would be very difficult dealing with patients with kidney problems or failure.

I first met Dr Moritz while I was in Kidney failure and in a coma due to another problem. Soon after I awoke, I realized that the dedication of this man whom I had never met before had pulled me and my 26 year transplanted kidney out from the pit and back into the rather abnormal life of a kidney transplant patient. My 6 year old daughter now has her daddy and I get to see her grow up. Dr. Moritz is as kind as he needs to be. Remember, sometimes what we may see as a gruff side to anyone is just their own concern not well hidden. Would you rather a doctor be a complete zombie or a kissie feelie wimp, crying on your shoulder as you cry on his?

After 3 1/2 years of dialysis and almost 29 years with a kidney transplant, I have only had 5 Nephrologists in Austin and Houston. 1 was a putz. 2 were great. 2 were outstanding. One of those is Dr. Moritz! If I insist on eating a bucket of wings during the superbowl, he just rolls his eyes and reminds me to take my diuretics and potassium, and I really don't eat the whole box just because I know that it's bad for my Renal Diet and Dr. Moritz will have to fix any damage I've done to myself. Once we go under a doctor's care for something like kidney disease we become their project and keeping us alive and as healthy as possible under falilig systems is the end goal of that project.

If we act like little children and disobey the Doctor's Orders ther we will be treated like children and be chastised somewhat.

Pros: Very up to date with latest treatement and medication options.

Cons: None

Dr Moritz has been my nephrologist for almost ten years now and I think he is really a bright doctor who keeps up with the research in his area. He does have some quirks and a certain flair of arrogance that might be perceived by some patients as "terrible bedside manner". He's a motorcycle dude so I don't expect him to be emotional or sympathetic; in fact when I was first diagnosed with PKD, he said, "You got a tiger by the tail, boy". However, I have always found that he is willing to take longer than the usual doctor's 10 minutes when meeting in his office (in fact many times he has explained and discussed my condition for over 30 minutes). He is an expert a juggling all the meds a kidney patient must take and he is up to date on the new meds. He really knows kidneys. And, finally, he has pulled together a multi-cultural group of nephrologists who all seem to know what they're doing. I give him a "thumbs up"!

Pros: Brains, Multi-cultural docs, knowledge of meds,

Cons: Abrasive, arrogant, Republican

I've only seen him for check-ups in the office. He's very smart, personable and patiently listens and explains.

I was hospitalized for kidney problems for several weeks, and Dr. Moritz was my doctor. His bedside manner was appalling. He was often grumpy, humorless and seemed distracted -- as if he would rather be somewhere else. When I expressed concern about discomfort during a procedure, he actually scoffed at me, telling me "I did this procedure on a 28-year-old woman yesterday and SHE didn't need any pain medication." He seems to be well-educated and fully qualified, but Dr. Moritz was probably the worst doctor I have ever dealt with, in terms of attitude and bedside manner. Which, when dealing with a doctor, can be just as important.
