Allison Webber



Dr. Allison Webber is a specialist in kidney disease who cares for patients before and after they receive kidney transplants or combined kidney-pancreas transplants.

In her research, Webber is interested in immune system monitoring and antibody-mediated rejection in kidney transplantation; she is a co-principal investigator or co-investigator on several industry- and government-sponsored studies in these areas. She is also interested in developing a kidney transplantation program for patients with end-stage renal disease from multiple myeloma (a type of blood cancer). She has partnered with UCSF's oncology department to establish a transplantation protocol for these patients.

Webber earned her medical degree at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. At New York – Presbyterian Hospital, an affiliate of Weill Cornell Medicine, she completed a residency in internal medicine as well as fellowships in nephrology (treatment of kidney disease) and transplant nephrology.

Webber joined UCSF in 2009 and has held various leadership positions, including director of the postsurgical clinic for kidney transplant patients from 2010 to 2018. She runs a monthly kidney transplant conference with UCSF nephrology fellows to review transplant-related concepts, including immunology and immunosuppressive drugs, transplant rejection, transplant histopathology (microscopic study of sampled cells to assess disease) and infectious complications.

    At first was looking sideways on the screen and not looking facing me. That was strange. But later she was looking at me and making good eye contact and being very personal.

    She never asks (or seems to care) how I am actually feeling or doing. Everything is based off of my lab results and there is never any concern or questions about how I actual feel and how I am doing since my transplant.

    Provider was excellent
    Sep 16, 2022
    She never asked how I am doing or feeling. Or if I'm having any problems issues or side effects. I was purely numbers on a piece of paper to her rather than a person. The numbers are important but I think that the providers should also inquire into how I am doing post transplant. She was only interested in what my labs showed and what dosages of meds I take. I am more than a piece of paoer.
