Question about changing Transplant Clinics.
Looking for some help and advice on changing from one transplant center to another.I have been through testing and was considered to be a an recipient candidate. I am on the kidney transplant waiting list. I am not feeling supported at my current transplant clinic. I am interested in changing to another transplant center. Mayo in particular. I always wanted to be with Mayo, but my provider referred me to this other clinic. My health insurance will cover the the change to Mayo. The problem, do I need to start the whole process over and be re-evaluated or will Mayo just accept transferred medial records and then meet with me? Will this affect my status on the waiting list? What happens to anyone who may be in the process of being tested for me? I have tried to ask my transplant coordinator, but she just tells me that she only talks to me when there is a donor and she makes the call. She knows nothing about potential donors or anything else. I do not know who to turn to for answers. I love CONNECT as my clinic has nothing like this to support patients. Uncertain what to do next. Any suggestions, answers or help would be greatly appreciated.
