About Branson Nephrology & Dialysis
John Martinez, MD, and Dwight Zabel, MD, are board certified nephrologists who have been treating patients with kidney disease in southwest Missouri and northwest Arkansas since 2002. Together with Johnna Manna, PA-C, and Lavonne Burrows, APRN, their team provides a full spectrum of chronic kidney disease (CKD) care, including CKD education and advanced care planning for patients approaching kidney failure.
Their care begins in the physician’s office, where they create an individualized care plan to slow the progression of kidney disease and closely manage the patient’s chronic medical problems. Their office provides education and counseling about many different therapy options, including transplantation. If the patient chooses one of their many dialysis therapies, there are three outpatient dialysis facilities where providers perform weekly rounds to continue to optimize kidney health: Branson Dialysis, Branson West Kidney Center and Harrison Dialysis.
Kidney disease does not have to be scary. Let Dr. Martinez and Dr. Zabel guide you with tools and resources to have kidney health success.
