About Me

I'm Nurelign Abebe, MD, and I joined Phelps Health as a nephrologist in 2017. I earned my medical degree from Gondar College of Medical Sciences in Ethiopia. I completed my residency training in internal medicine through Addis Ababa University at Black Lion Hospital in Ethiopia. I also completed a residency program in internal medicine at St. Luke’s Hospital in Chesterfield, Missouri. 

Additionally, I completed a nephrology fellowship at Barnes-Jewish Hospital through Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. Prior to working as a nephrologist, I was previously employed by Phelps Health from 2011-2015 as a hospitalist. My special interests include kidney diseases and dialysis.

I also offer telehealth visits, which allow patients to visit with me remotely using a smartphone, tablet or computer with an internet connection and audio-video capabilities.
