About

Our History

Eugene-Springfield Nephrology Associates has been providing care and treatment to kidney patients in Lane County for over 45 years. Dr. Emily B. Fergus and Dr. Mattox Purvis first established our clinic in 1973 and were later joined by Dr. James Walker in 1977. To this day, Dr. Purvis is still a part of our nephrology clinic, assisting with rounds and supporting other nephrologists.

Our nephrology clinic established the first dialysis unit outside of Portland at Sacred Heart Hospital in 1974. Since then, our locations have expanded and we care for patients from Coos Bay, North Bend, Florence, and Roseburg. Eugene-Springfield Nephrology currently has five board-certified nephrologists, three physician assistants and manages dialysis units in Eugene, Springfield, Florence and Coos Bay.

Our Mission

Founded on being an independent team of hardworking physicians, our nephrologists wanted to create something long lasting in the community. Our physicians put patient care first, while raising the bar for each other through mutual respect, collaboration, and continuing education. Patient education is crucial for improving health. Our physicians build relationships with every one of their patients and talk them through any health concerns so they understand what is going on and how they can improve their well-being.
