For nephrologist Dr. Phyllis August, helping women with kidney disorders or high-blood pressure become pregnant is as much her passion as it is part of her identity as a doctor. At Weill Cornell Medicine, Dr. August and her colleagues share a commitment to patient success, which in obstetric nephrology means both healthy mom and baby.
"At Weill Cornell, there are other people who care about patient well-being as much as I do," said Dr. August, the Ralph A. Baer, M.D. Professor of Medical Research and a professor of medicine in obstetrics and gynecology at Weill Cornell Medicine. "You have to be present for your patients. Be there for them — listen, think and feel — and you can’t go wrong as a doctor."
