About Me

Sanford Reikes, MD, specializes in nephrology and is the Section Chief, Renal Services at Summit Health. Prior to joining Summit Health, Dr. Reikes practiced in Louisville, KY.

"I believe that treating illness is most successful where a partnership exists between the patient, physician, nurses and other professionals," says Dr. Reikes. "This team approach encourages communication from the patient to the healthcare providers allowing more individual care."

When he is not working with patients, Dr. Reikes enjoys spending time with his family, writing and playing music, baseball, hockey, art, and history.
