- Kidney and Hypertension Associates
- Kidney and Hypertension Associates is a physician group that specializes in the treatment of patients with kidney diseases, hypertension, diabetes and stone disease. Kidney and Hypertension Associates was formed by Dr. David Powers who started a part-time nephrology practice on the Northshore in 1998 in conjunction with LSU Health Sciences Center in New Orleans where he was a professor. Dr. Powers left LSU in the year 2000 to pursue a full-time private practice.

Our physicians and nurse practitioner also care for patients in other dialysis units so as to provide service to all of the Northshore communities. In addition, Kidney & Hypertension Associates physicians and practitioners maintain a large hospital practice to care for our patients as well as to provide consulting services to other physicians in hospitals throughout the Northshore.
