Welcome to Lynchburg Nephrology


Lynchburg Nephrology Physicians (LNP) was founded in 1976 by Dr Richard Giles, and has remained since then the sole regional provider for comprehensive nephrologic care. The practice is now made of up of six full-time and one part-time nephrologists and two physician extenders. The practice partners with Centra Health and the University of Virginia for provision of care to dialysis, transplant, and CKD patients.

Our mission remains to continue a history of patient centric behavior,and to provide comprehensive, consistent, high quality care to all patients with renal and hypertensive diseases.

Our vision is to expand the reputation and services of LNP and to remain the preferred regional provider of choice for comprehensive hypertension and renal care. We would strive to develop a vertically integrated, comprehensive renal practice which provides superior, state of the art care to patients with renal disease and hypertension in Central Virginia. Working in conjunction with a comprehensive network of providers and referring physicians, we would strive to implement CKD education programs to insure early detection and treatment of hypertensive and renal disease. We aim to improve and expand our inpatient renal support services to include CVVH and plasmapheresis. The practice will explore strategic affiliations to engage in clinical research and CKD disease management contracting, and employ the best available options for business information systems, utilization management, and efficient, streamlined business practices..
