Internist & Nephrologist located in West Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, CA

Specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of kidney diseases and dialysis technology in addition to internal medicine, Dr. Gura offers patients a comprehensive array of treatment options using the most advanced techniques and approaches to care, including treatment for diabetes, high blood pressure (hypertension), acute kidney injury (AKI), chronic kidney disease, end-stage renal disease (ESRD) and proteinuria, as well as routine physical exams and preventative medicine aimed at helping patients maintain optimal health at every age and every stage of life.

At his practice in Beverly Hills, California, Dr. Gura provides compassionate, patient-centered care based on each patient's unique needs to help ensure the best possible outcomes. The office is equipped with state-of-the-art technology to provide patients with cutting-edge care in a relaxed setting designed for patient comfort.

After earning his medical degree at Universidad De Buenos Aires, Dr. Gura completed an internship at T. Shmea Hospital followed by residencies at Tel Aviv University/Beilinson Hospital and the University of Southern California (USC). With decades of experience in both internal medicine and nephrology, Dr. Gura has an international presence and is the inventor of the revolutionary Wearable Artificial Kidney (WAK™), a portable, ergonomically designed dialysis device that enables patients to experience the benefits of daily dialysis while performing their normal, day-to-day routines. The WAK™'s unique design helps eliminate fluid on a regular basis to reduce strain on the kidneys, lungs, and heart while also reducing blood pressure. Plus, the WAK™ reduces or eliminates the risk of malnutrition in patients with an end-stage renal disease, which in turn can help prevent infections and other dangerous side effects of ESRD. The device's contoured profile is designed for patient comfort, and the device weighs less than 10 pounds, making it extremely portable and easy to use. Powered by 9-volt batteries, the WAK™ uses a tiny fraction of the amount of fluid required by conventional dialysis, and because it's portable, it eliminates the need to travel to dialysis centers, which can be especially important for patients in more rural areas.

As a leading nephrologist, Dr. Gura is on staff at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, where he provides state-of-the-art care for patients from across the country and around the world. Dr. Gura and his office staff welcome new patients, and the practice accepts most types of major medical insurance including Medicare. The doctor and his staff speak English, Spanish, Hebrew, and Russian.
