Welcome to Balboa Nephrology Medical Group, Inc.. We are a physician group specializing in the care of patients with kidney disease and related illnesses.

Beginning in 1973, as part of San Diego Internal Medicine, we have grown from two physicians to a comprehensive nephrology team of 41 board-certified physicians. From one small office, BNMG now has 16 clinical offices throughout San Diego, Imperial County and Orange County.

In addition to office and hospital based patient care, BNMG physicians manage the dialysis treatments of approximately 3,500 patients at 35 dialysis centers. We also provide many ancillary services, including:
