Zarah Gaerlan, MSN, APN
Zarah Gaerlan has worked as a dialysis nurse for 13 years providing care and education to patients with kidney disease. She selected nephrology field because it is the complex and challenging organ system to study. She also likes nephrology as it is one of the very few areas in medicine that allows providers to establish a long-term relationship with the patient. It is important for her to be of service to minorities who are significantly affected by kidney disease.
