Your nephrologist or dialysis unit can refer you to our program. You also have the option of referring yourself. After we receive your referral, one of our team members will contact you to start the transplant process.
During a transplant evaluation, required lab tests, radiology tests and cardiac tests are paid for by the transplant program. You are also required to have a dental evaluation as well as a cancer screening depending on your age and risk. You are responsible for paying for these tests.
You will be scheduled for an education session and evaluation with all members of our team. Please bring a support person with you, as he or she will play an important role in your recovery and success.
