Rainy Lake Specialty Clinic hosts a nephrology outreach clinic for Sanford Health. Nephrologists specialize in diagnosing and treating kidney disease and disorders in patients of all ages—from newborns to adults. Dr. Daniel Louvar specializes in diagnosing and treating kidney disease, hypertension, and kidney transplants. Kidney conditions requiring treatment include sudden loss of renal (kidney) function, blood in the urine, loss of protein in the urine, kidney stones, chronic urinary tract infections, and hypertension (high blood pressure).
Dr. Louvar graduated from the University of Minnesota, School of Medicine in 2002 and completed an internal medicine residency at the Mayo School of Graduate Medical Education in Rochester, MN, in 2005. In 2009, he completed a nephrology fellowship at the Division of Renal Diseases and Hypertension at the University of Minnesota and the Division of Nephrology at the Hennepin County Medical Center. During that time, he also earned a Master’s in Clinical Research from the University of Minnesota School of Public Health.
Offering nephrology services right here at Rainy Lake Clinic with outreach services provided by Sanford Health is another way Rainy Lake Medical Center shows its commitment to our patients and community-based healthcare.
