Hana Kwan, M.D. - San Antonio Kidney

Known for spending quality time with patients, Dr. Kwan welcomes new and existing patients to San Antonio Kidney Disease Center Physicians Group, P.L.L.C. in South Central Texas.

After living abroad in the Middle East for her formative years, Dr. Kwan returned to the New England area to complete both her undergraduate and medical degrees. She was accepted into the prestigious Program for Liberal Medical Education and received her bachelor’s degree in neuroscience from Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island. Prior to her graduation from her undergraduate studies, she was awarded a scholarship in the Air Force Health Professionals Scholarship Program to attend the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University, where she finished her medical degree. She then completed her internal medicine residency and nephrology fellowship with the San Antonio Uniformed Services Health Education Consortium and UT Health San Antonio in San Antonio, TX.

After her medical training, she served in the United States Air Force as a staff nephrologist for four years. Her service included a tour in Afghanistan in 2015 where she honed her skills in nephrology, general internal medicine, trauma and critical care. For her work there, she was awarded the Air Force Commendation Medal for Outstanding Achievement. She achieved the rank of Major before separating from the USAF after nine years of active duty service in 2018. For her service, she also received the Meritorious Service Medal. She is a proud veteran and is also the proud spouse of an active duty member in the US Army.

Dr. Kwan is board certified through the American Board of Internal Medicine, with a subspecialty in nephrology. She is also a member of the American Society of Nephrology. She has published in the Clinical Journal of American Society of Nephrology in the field of acute kidney injury amongst military casualties. In 2018, she was also named as one of San Antonio Scene’s Rising Star Doctors.

Outside of work, Dr. Kwan has a passion for travel. Living abroad during her childhood instilled a sense of adventure and a love of experiencing new cultures and sights. She continues to travel as much as possible. She also loves to meet people in both her travels and her work, and looks forward to meeting new patients and forming meaningful long-term patient-doctor relationships.
