About Joshua J. Zaritsky

Biography

Joshua Zaritsky, MD is a board certified pediatric nephrologist specializing in a wide range of kidney disorders, from common disorders such as kidney stones and nephrotic syndrome to rare disorders such as cystinosis and X-linked hypophosphatemia. He is passionate about his work and his relationships with patients, often relying on humor to connect with kids and their families. He loves the energy children carry with them and finds supporting their health care and optimism extremely rewarding. He is also highly motivated to help families navigate complex medical conditions; as a parent himself, he knows how stressful it can be when a child is sick and strives to educate and empower families to manage difficult circumstances.

Dr. Zaritsky enjoys outdoor exercise and often rides his bike to work. In his free time, he loves traveling with his family, especially to Sanibel Island in Florida.
