Multiple cysts in kidney. Ultrasound report done. Consult a nephrologist or urologist?

Hi Doctor,
My child is now 6 months old. Before birth mutiple cysts were detected in her right kidney. Ultrasound report (after birth) says her right kidney functions 6.42%.
Currently, she looks very much fine to me. Normal urine and stool. Normal diet.
I am confused as to whether i should be consulting Nephrologist or Urologist ? Since i am from India (Bangalore), i am planning to visit CMCH - Vellore.
Please assist in selecting the specialist doctor for the above mentioned problem to baby.

Nephrologist 's  Response
Hi, Multicystic dysplastic kidney is a condition where one kidney is affected with cyst. It is congenital with poor function. Usually opposite kidney remains unaffected. But to make sure, you need to visit nephrologist for detailed evaluation. There are good number of nephrologist available at Bangalore. Wish you good health for your child.
