Dr. Carmody is a lifelong Virginian. Born and raised in Richlands, he majored in chemistry at Washington & Lee University before attending medical school at the University of Virginia. During his medical training, he became fascinated with kidney disease and renal physiology. After completing his residency training at CHKD, he returned to UVA for a fellowship in pediatric nephrology, then came back to CHKD to join the Children’s Kidney Center and to be a part of Virginia’s only freestanding children’s hospital.
The Children’s Kidney Center is equipped to manage all types of kidney disease. The center has the only dedicated pediatric dialysis unit and the only pediatric-specific kidney transplant program in the state of Virginia — along with a multidisciplinary team to care for the children. Dr. Carmody feels it is a special place to work and is glad to be here.
In addition to patient care, Dr. Carmody also teaches at Eastern Virginia Medical School.
In his spare time, Dr. Carmody enjoys writing, running and spending time with his son and family.
