This is a long shot - but anyone know of a nephrologist in Abu dhabi (or Dubai). Someone good with post transplant care? Or anyone in the medical field who can advise who to contact for referral?

Dr. Ali Al Obaidli, Clinical Director at the Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (SEHA) and Consultant Nephrologist at Sheikh Khalifa Medical City (SKMC).


i did a search and i found this on the net it is recent from march 2008 so it could be a place to start. you can call shiek khalifa hospital and ask to talk to this man if he wont see you he will give you a name for someone who will. otherwise you can ask at the hospital for a nephrologist who see expats. i know it has been posted many times that SKH is for locals only but ihave used it on occasion and im expat as well i have phoned there asking for info for certain specialist, they have been very approachable and helpful. likewise you can phone the other hospitals in town al noor etc and ask.

this will link you with american hospital in dubai which is very good and their renal unit.
a couple of places to start anyway, i find the hospitals in dubai to have alot more resources then abi dhabi hope this changes soon, and the drive ( not that its much just the traffic ) to be worth it.

good luck hope this helps you out! crossfingers.gif cool.gif

Hi Sharky,

Just to let you know that SKMC and other "government" hospitals are now not just for locals. With the introduction of the private health insurance schemes in Abu Dhabi the hospitals are more readily available to all that need them - UAE nationals and non-nationals. If you do not have DAMAN insurance that qualifies you for treatment at said government hospitals, you can still be seen (as per pre DAMAN insurance) and pay for your consultations and treatment as you go.

SKMC also has opened up a transplant department. Maybe also ask to be put through to them for further info as well.

Good luck to you.
