Saratoga Hospital Expands Nephrology Services in Glens Falls
Dr. Michael Bourla now seeing patients at Broad Street Plaza office
GLENS FALLS, N.Y., April 28, 2021—Saratoga Hospital's Dr. Michael Bourla now sees patients at Saratoga Nephrology in Glens Falls, making it easier for those with chronic kidney disease and related conditions to access specialty care close to home.
Bourla joins Dr. Amy Hogan-Moulton at the Glens Falls location at 2 Broad Street Plaza. Both physicians are members of Saratoga Hospital Medical Group - Nephrology.
Nephrologists are doctors who treat diseases and conditions that affect the kidneys and their ability to function. Kidney disease is more common in people 65 and older, and an aging population and diabetes are fueling the increasing demand for these specialists.
"For patients with chronic kidney disease, timely nephrology care can have a significant positive impact on health and quality of life," Hogan-Moulton said. "With Dr. Bourla on our team, we can help with early intervention in renal disease when prevention and management efforts can be most effective."
A graduate of Duke University, Bourla earned his medical degree at Albert Einstein School of Medicine in New York City. He completed an internship and residency at Tulane University School of Medicine in New Orleans, followed by a two-year clinical fellowship in nephrology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. Bourla is board certified in internal medicine and nephrology.
