• I got my life back thanks to DaVita IKC.


    "I had a kidney transplant in 2005. Several months ago I was suffering from severe depression. I am a cyclist who normally rides my bike 50 miles a day and I felt so depressed I could not get out of bed. The DaVita Integrated Kidney Care program checked in on me to see how I’m feeling and to see if there are any problems. When I told them how depressed I felt, they sent me in to see a psychiatrist and to attend a support group for transplant patients. I got my life back thanks to DaVita IKC." - David

  • The DaVita IKC program is like having an angel.


    "I am the caregiver for my spouse who had a stroke and cannot talk very well. She also has diabetes. The DaVita IKC program is like having an angel. They always help us with appointments and get things done quickly. They arranged outpatient physical therapy for my wife after her stroke. In only four weeks my wife was standing by herself." - Caregiver for Vickie

  • When I was in the hospital, my Integrated Care Nurse was my lifeline.


    "When I was in the hospital, my Integrated Care Nurse was my lifeline. Over the phone she explained what was happening to me. She called me every day for the first two weeks after I was discharged back home to make certain I was OK. The dietitian has been helpful in educating me on how to adhere to my dietary restrictions, while still eating healthy foods. It is very reassuring to know someone is there who understands how difficult it is to manage chronic illness. With DaVita Integrated Kidney Care I know I am not alone." - Eleanor

  • Support from knowledgeable, intelligent nurses that care about me.


    "DaVita IKC gives me a place to go for information and direction about my health with support from knowledgeable, intelligent nurses that care about me. I have complex medical problems including a heart transplant and CKD. My nurse reinforces and clarifies the written educational material from the program as well as coordinating and advising me on timely testing and visits to my specialists. Due to this program, I have been able to lead a fulfilling lifestyle." - Nicholas

  • Thanks to the personal interest in my health from the DaVita IKC team.


    "I have been a dialysis patient since January. I am a diabetic and also have high blood pressure. My DaVita IKC program helps me control my blood sugars by working with my health care team to adjust my oral medications. I also feel much more open to express my feelings thanks to the personal interest in my health from the DaVita IKC team." - Margaret

  • I appreciate not having to go to the emergency room for treatment.


    "

    I am new to dialysis. Going to dialysis is difficult. I go to the dialysis center three times a week, four hours a day. I had a kidney infection several weeks ago and I could not get in to see a doctor for treatment. The DaVita Integrated Kidney Care program had a nurse practitioner come out to my home and treat me for my infection. I appreciate not having to go to the emergency room for treatment.

  • I am doing better medically because of the education and support of this program.


    "

    My Integrated Care Nurse looks out for me. She encourages me to keep taking care of myself. I am doing better medically because of the education and support of this program. I am more knowledgeable about my blood pressure and my kidneys. I look forward to seeing my nurse. My scale is very valuable because it helps me control my fluid balance and I can communicate with my nurses this way. I have great confidence in DaVita Integrated Kidney Care, so please keep this program going.

  • The nurses are always on top of my condition.


    "

    I was blessed the day DaVita IKC first called me. The nurses are always on top of my condition. They tell me what I need to hear and not what I want to hear. I have a scale and I use it every day to stay healthy. DaVita IKC always gives me important advice on my fluids, swelling, breathing and my diabetes. I have not been in the hospital nearly as much as I was before DaVita IKC started helping me. My heart failure is under better control now. I do not know what would happen to me without the DaVita Integrated Kidney Care program. It is a very helpful and important program.
