Arvind Shah, MD FACP

"I have been practicing Nephrology in Kern County since 1975. My interest in kidney disease started while researching Kidney Involvement in Diabetes Mellitus, a thesis submitted for my doctorate degree to the Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda, India. I have always enjoyed helping my patients affected with chronic kidney disease and other ailments. I am grateful for learning from them the values of sacrifice, endurance, grace, and faith in God."
