Dr. Mahmud believes that the best care is the prevention of a disease. In order to achieve this, her treatment plan consists of a comprehensive view of the patient, as well as educating the patient.
As a nephrologist, she advocates for quality of life for her patients.
Her treatment plan provides a team-based lifestyle approach for renal care - whether it is early stage kidney disease or requires dialysis/ kidney transplant.
We know there is no such thing as one-size-fits-all cure, so we never use a one-size-fits-all approach to your diagnosis or treatment plan.
Our goal is to improve and maintain your overall health and to empower you with an understanding of your condition and treatment plan. Our mission is to provide you with personalized, high-quality care. We are dedicated to improving and maintaining your health through preventative care and treating chronic diseases.
Dr. Mahmud has more than 25 years of experience as a physician. She completed medical school in 1990. She is board certified in Internal Medicine, Nephrology and Hypertension. She is a fellow of the American Society of Nephrology and a member of the Massachusetts Medical Society. She completed her residency training in Internal Medicine at St. Vincent's Hospital in 1997, and her fellowship training in Nephrology from Boston University Medical Center in 1999. She joined Boston University School of Medicine, Renal Section as a junior faculty in 2000.
She was a recipient of the NKF grant award by National Kidney Foundation and National Research Service Award by NIH in 2000 for doing research in podocyte biology.
She has a special interest in diabetic and other proteinuric kidney diseases, as well as management of obesity-related kidney disease and fluid overload.
She is affiliated with UMass Memorial Marlborough Hospital, MetroWest Medical Center, Milford Regional Medical Center and 5 dialysis facilities in the area.
Renal care is a team effort in which the patient is as an active team player. Providing adequate patient education is the first step in enabling the patient's participation for successful long term management of this difficult disease.
A nephrologist must have a comprehensive view of the patient rather than viewing the kidney problem in isolation.
We team up with the cardiologist, endocrinologist and sometimes nutritionist and vascular surgeon and develop a care plan in coordination with the primary care physician. This ensures optimal management of renal care, as well as timely preparation for dialysis and/or kidney transplantation, when necessary.
