Using Your Own Doctor

We understand the importance of feeling comfortable with your Kidney Doctor, this is why we can accredit your current doctor with our clinic, or refer a Kidney Doctor to you.
Talk to your Kidney Doctor about your treatment options. Your Kidney Doctor may assess you with the following in mind:
  • Your Medical Condition
  • Your Psychological Condition
  • Your Lifestyle
  • Your location to a dialysis Facility
  • Your Home Conditions
Not everyone is a candidate for Home Dialysis, but as a well-informed patient, you can help your Kidney Doctor decide on a treatment option that works for you.
