Harjeet S. Brar, MD

I am a physician in a growing nephrology practice in Bakersfield, California. I truly enjoy research and teaching, which earned me the coveted "North Shore University Excellence in Research Award" all three years of my residency in New York from 2001 to 2004. I also won the American Transplant Congress and SSCI Young Investigator Award. I have many published articles which have helped me grow as a physician. (I was also the editor of graphics for the North Shore Journal of Medicine, for I also enjoy the arts and photography). The time, study, and research required for the articles have helped me better understand my patients’ needs and concerns. I hope to help as many as I can, and I look forward to serving Bakersfield, and the surrounding areas, for many years.
