Dr. Wetmore grew up in New Jersey and has been privileged to train at various locations throughout the U.S. After fellowship training in San Francisco, he was a faculty member at University of Kansas Medical Center for eight years before coming to HCMC.

Dr. Wetmore chose nephrology as a specialty since it involves acute inpatient care, outpatient clinic care of patients with chronic kidney disease, and care of chronic dialysis patients with end stage renal disease. He was drawn to HCMC because of its strong tradition of research in kidney disease.
