Richard R. Barager - M.D.

Dr. Barager joined Balboa Nephrology Medical Group in 2015. He practices in the Oceanside area, specializing in the treatment of patients with all manner of kidney disease, including the care of dialysis patients and kidney transplant recipients.

Dr. Barager earned his Doctor of Medicine degree from the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. After completing his residency in Internal Medicine at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, he completed his Nephrology Fellowship training at the University of California San Diego.

He has served multiple terms on the BNMG Board of Directors, including as Chairman. Dr. Barager is a champion of superior corporate governance, and is a certified member of the National Association of Corporate Directors.

He believes the two finest callings in life are being a doctor and a writer. By day, he is a nephrologist; by night, he writes fiction.
