I am glad I have the kidney team behind me, but n real life I would hate to have to recommend them to anyone else. Never a good sign.UofU Patient March 11, 2013
Every time I come for a check-up regarding my kidney transplant I see a new doctor. After waiting for over an hour I saw a doctor who I'd never seen before. He was very brief, he didn't take the time to answer my questions, and he didn't seem interested at all in anything pertaining to my visit or care.UofU Patient February 18, 2013
They gave me good information regarding the rejection medication that I did not know about which was very important to me. On my own medication that I am taking now I don't think she understood that I let my doctors know of any changes that I made.UofU Patient February 18, 2013
