About Me

As a transplant nephrologist, I specialize in kidney and pancreas transplantation, where I provide long-term care to my patients. In addition to overseeing transplant function, I work to preserve my patients’ general health so they can live longer, healthier lives. I am always striving to maintain mutually trusting relationships with my patients and their families.

I believe in developing strong relationships with my patients in order to understand the nuances of their health issues. The majority of the patients that I see have several co-morbid conditions and their long-term wellbeing is heavily dependent on the understanding of their conditions and adhering to their treatment plans. I find it incredibly fulfilling to see my patients return to healthy, productive and independent lives after successful transplants.

Ohio State has one of the largest kidney transplant centers in the nation and I enjoy working with all of the excellent transplant physicians here. I also appreciate the many opportunities I’ve had over the years to build a career in education, research and administration, in addition to clinical work.

When I’m not working, I like to spend time reading, relaxing with my family and enjoying the outdoors.

Consulting and Related Relationships

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.

As of 11/21/2019, Dr. Nori has reported no relationships with companies or entities.
