Our Approach


Dr. Hemant Kulkarni, is an only dual trained (Adult and Paediatric) Nephrologist in the state, with national and international specialist qualifications and experience in the field of nephrology since 1995.

Since joining the WA in June 2004, private outpatients were established initially at Mandurah and later expanded to Armadale in September 2004, providing the care closer to home for patients in outer metropolitan area of Perth.

Private inpatients were serviced at St John of God Health Care in Murdoch since 2004, however outpatient services had to be started in June 2010 for comprehensive delivery of services.

WEXFORD NEPHROLOGY® was formally born with the development of new premises of Wexford Medical Centre in Sept 2014. This has allowed centralised access for all our clients, improved flexibility for provision of services and improved ability to co-ordinate care.
