Board certified, fellowship-trained physician to lead the practice

TEMPE, ARIZ. (May 16, 2018) – Southwest Kidney Institute (SKI), one of the nation’s largest nephrology groups, is opening its newest location in Fort Mohave, AZ today. Adjacent to Valley View Medical Center campus, SKI is located at 5330 S. 95th Hwy., Ste. M, and appointments can be made by calling (480) 610-6100.

SKI provides comprehensive treatment for acute and chronic kidney disease, end-stage renal disease, hypertension, kidney stones, kidney transplant, and electrolyte disorders.

One of the few Spanish-speaking nephrologists in the tri-state region, Mario Torres, MD will work in SKI’s Fort Mohave location. Dr. Torres is Board Certified and completed a nephrology fellowship at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School in New Brunswick, NJ. Also serving patients in SKI’s Kingman and Lake Havasu locations, Dr. Torres is committed to bringing high quality medical care to smaller communities.

“We are thrilled to expand and serve patients in Fort Mohave and neighboring communities, like Bullhead City, Needles and Laughlin,” said Dr. Torres. “My goal is to understand the needs of the community, including referring physicians, and work together to meet the medical and lifestyle needs of each patient.”

In addition to its new location, SKI supports the community 24/7 through online resources, including a Patient Education Center, blogs by SKI physicians, and a Patient Portal, which enables established patients to securely send messages to their SKI care team, review medical records, and more. SKI supports referring providers through online referral forms, medical records requests, and a clinical information center. For more information about Southwest Kidney Institute, visit
