HKSC Provider Team



HKSC was founded on March 1st, 2019 by us, Dr. Devaraj Munikrishnappa and Dr. Ghayyath Sultan, after practicing in the same area for 10 years and 4 years respectively. We are experienced and compassionate practicing Nephrologists, well trained in the field of Nephrology at St. Louis University, St. Louis, Missouri and University of Texas at San Antonio, Texas respectively. We are Board-Certified in Nephrology and are Diplomats of the American Board of Internal Medicine and Nephrology.

We envision HKSC to be one of the most sought-after premier Nephrology Groups in the Northwest Houston area. We have the honor and fortune of being very well received by the community of patients, a large physician referral bases and dialysis units alike for several years now.

We have maintained a very broad-based presence in the North West Houston area. We are among the leading Nephrologists at Methodist Willowbrook Hospital, Memorial Hermann Cypress Hospital, HCA Houston Healthcare North Cypress, CHI St. Luke’s Health- The Vintage Hospital, Kindred Hospital, and Encompass Rehabilitation centers. Besides providing services in these hospitals of top-notch quality, we also provide excellent services at various freestanding outpatient dialysis units including Fairfield Dialysis, Vintage Dialysis, Cypresswood dialysis unit, Northwest FMC dialysis unit, and several others.

With our proven vision, hard-working nature, well-established credentials, tremendous cumulative experience and knowledge in the field of Medicine and Nephrology, we strongly believe that we will always continue providing excellent compassionate patient care. It is our ongoing endeavor too, to achieve with great passion, the current quadruple aim of our medical industry – measurable clinical outcomes, better clinician experience, lower the cost of care and population health.

We sincerely appreciate and thank our patients, families and friends for their immense trust and support in our endeavor to deliver the best care possible to our patients in the community.

Thank you,
