Nephrology Today Interview with Dr.Degani, MD

Hear how having the right help with your medical practice back office can help you focus on patients and work life balance.

Dr. Omaima Degani is a nephrologist in Gurnee, Illinois and is affiliated with Advocate Condell, Vista Regional and Midwestern Regional Medical Centers. She received her medical degree from American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine and has been in practice for 11years.

Dr. Degani is a member of the ASN, AMA and ACP. She has a special interest in caring for patients with ESRD and those with Acute Kidney Injury. Outside of her practice, Dr. Degani travels with her family and volunteers at Feed My Starving Children.

Listen as Dr. Degani discusses the challenges of running her nephrology practice and the success her practice has had by joining a larger group. She also touches on the importance of work life balance as a physician.

Since joining NANI in 2015 Dr. Degani has grown her practice to six physicians. The practice is in an area with a growing population, where patient needs are quite substantial. With the help of NANI, Dr. Degani was able to acquire 2 other practices of retiring Nephrologists. NANI has been instrumental in helping to organize the back office and expand the practice, now operating with 3 offices and many dialysis options for patients.

Maintaining Work/Life Balance

“Having NANI on board has helped tremendously”, says Dr. Degani , “Work/life balance is essential to all physicians.” Work life balance is always a challenge especially when managing a practice. A physician's time is in great demand between patient care, administration, and family life partnering, but working in a group eases some of the stress. With the help of NANI, Dr. Degani is able to focus on patient care.

Patient care is a top priority, but Dr. Degani knows that practicing medicine is more than just seeing patients. Having the help of NANI and Tower has helped not only grow her practice but helped in the areas of meaningful use, EHR, MIPS/MACRA. Now let’s listen to the Podcast!
