Physician earns board certification
Benjamin Morgan, MS, MD, a physician at the River Falls Medical Clinic (with locations in Ellsworth and Spring Valley), has earned board certification in the Internal Medicine subspecialty of Nephrology (or kidney specialist).
As the only nephrologist in the area, his expertise is an exciting addition to the River Falls and surrounding communities of Western Wisconsin.
Morgan’s special interests include working with patients who have complex medical conditions such as high blood pressure or diabetes. Morgan has spent the last eight years in major university-based hospitals and is used to dealing with complicated conditions.
“Kidney disease is becoming more common with two of its major causes--diabetes and high blood pressure--on the rise. These patients often need careful monitoring because they are at risk for other health problems, such as kidney disease,” said Morgan.
Morgan is enthusiastic about bringing his two specialties to River Falls to help people already being treated for kidney disease who have had to travel to the Twin Cities to work with a local doctor.
Morgan attended the Southern Illinois University School of Medicine and completed his residency at the University of Minnesota School of Public Health.
