The staff attended to my husband in an efficient and competent manner. They paid close attention to physicians' orders and adjusted his dialysis treatment accordingly. When he cramped or felt uncomfortable as is expected from time to time during treatments, they responded with compassion and care. The dialysis center is conveniently located and provides adequate parking for patients and caregivers.
