Second Visit with the Nephrologist

Once the tests have been completed and received by the Transplant Center, the potential donor must return to the nephrologist for a second appointment. During this appointment all results will be reviewed.

At this point in time the donor will have a clear understanding of his or her eligibility status. If there are any questions regarding the potential donor's safety, the nephrologist will inform the donor.

Please keep in mind that at any point in this process the nephrologist may determine that the candidate would be at significant risk and not be eligible to donate.
