About Us

Welcome to Sierra Nevada Specialty Care. Prior to your visit please have your packet filled out completely. Please arrive 30 minutes prior to your new patient appointment and have your current medication list and insurance cards available. Also, be prepared to provide a urine specimen when you arrive. We look forward to seeing you! At Sierra Nevada Specialty Care (SNSC), we are committed to identifying and treating kidney and endocrine diseases early in their progression. With great courage and integrity, we embrace our responsibility to guide patients in making the right choices for their kidneys, their hormones, and their health to ensure the best possible quality of life. We accomplish this by valuing people, partnerships, and high-quality performance.

Northern Nevada is home to one of the largest and fastest-growing populations of diabetic patients in the country. Diabetes is a leading contributor to kidney disease, so we are seeing tremendous growth in chronic kidney disease among our residents. SNSC was established to better coordinate care for nephrology and endocrinology patients and to serve this growing population of patients requiring long-term kidney care

The practice was founded in 1982 and has grown steadily to address our region’s needs becoming the second largest nephrology group practice in the state of Nevada. SNSC has thirteen physicians and six nurse practitioners serving patients throughout Reno, Sparks, Carson City and the surrounding rural communities.
