Hi everyone I hope all is well for everyone-- I just wanted to know if anyone could enlighten me on what private practice nephro docs do-- do they work out of dialysis centers or do they have private clinics? How many hours do they typically work a week/ what is call schedule like-- are there alot of emergencies? In addition, how much of the managed care/insurance issues do they have to deal with-- I have heard that physician payment for dialysis is GUARANTEED by the government. Please help answer these questions. thanks.
