The Doctor on staff can't answer my question of the difference between 3 hours of dialysis compared to 4 hours. The tech's each have a different answer as to when Epogen will start to improve blood levels. One told me 3 days, another 2 weeks. I was told I needed a blood transfusion and could not come in for dialysis because my hbg was 7.1. A blood transfusion is not the first treatment when you are nearing a kidney transplant. The staff does not seem to be knowledgable or care about the overall health of a patient.
