Fahad Aziz, MD


Fahad Aziz, MD, is a transplant nephrologist at UW Health and an assistant professor in the Division of Nephrology at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health where he also serves as the program director for the nephrology fellowship where he focuses on educating a new generation of fellows about the rapidly expanding field of kidney transplants and the impact of positive physician-patient communication.

Dr. Aziz treats kidney disease and cares for kidney transplant patients, with a specific interest in those with hypertension or high-risk cardiovascular disease, and those with glomerular disease, which affects a vital part of the kidney’s filtration system that removes waste and excess fluid from the blood.

With a commitment to communication and shared decision-making, Dr. Aziz strives to make a difference in patient care. He connects with patients from the first appointment and is dedicated to listening and making tough choices together.

In his free time, Dr. Aziz enjoys writing short stories and medical literature. He has published three books to date.

The single most important thing is communication. When we make a shared decision, I help my patients to own their choices.
