At Hattiesburg Clinic Dialysis, Sorrells provides care for patients with stage 5 kidney disease at the department’s various satellite units throughout the region. Her goal is to help patients understand and properly manage their condition.
“Renal failure and the need for dialysis treatment is devastating to most patients. It takes time and ongoing education to help patients understand how to care for themselves properly. A team approach is needed to address the physical and emotional patient issues. Our goal is to improve their quality of life and allow them to view dialysis as a positive part of their lives.” – Sheri D. Sorrells, FNP
