"Besides the fact that Dr. Pride is so knowledgeable in his field, I find his best (or my favorite) attribute is that he listens to me .... he hears what I have to say. I am not an outspoken person, but feel comfortable voicing my opinion and asking questions. Be it a concern, or a question of options and alternatives, I feel that I have his undivided attention. When I leave his office, I am comfortable and confident with the decisions that were made for my treatment. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Pride. The last time we met, I remember saying to him, “I consider you as much my friend as my doctor.” I believe Dr. Pride is quite special."
"The team is very knowledgable and always available...I cannot say enough about Dr. Sam, Dr. Pride and the entire staff at Charleston Nephrology. [My] quality of life would be much lower without the support team...who just know the right thing to say at the right time."
Dr. Franklin and FNP Lori Infinger were very instrumental in getting a new kidney for me. I will always be very greatful for all that they have done. There aren't enough words to 'thank' them. Excellent care!
“I have been a patient at Charleston Nephrology for approximately 4 years. When I was first seen by Dr. Franklin, I was suffering from a devastating illness that was extremely difficult to diagnosis. Dr. Sam did an outstanding job in treating the renal component of my illness. To illustrate, I was an inpatient at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) where the staff there reviewed my diagnosis of renal disease and my treatment to date. The staff was extremely impressed with several aspects of Dr. Franklin’s management and specifically asked me to pass along their compliments. The staff has also been very helpful to me. My calls are usually returned very promptly. I receive what I need “pronto!” Hats off to Dr. Franklin and the staff at Charleston Nephrology!”
