Our first encounter with Dallas Renal Group was in November, 2006. Following a year of undiagonsed illness, Bob was taken to Charlton Methodist ER and was quickly moved to CICU. Early in his stay at Charlton, Bob required a Code Blue recesistation. All his vital signs and organs had shut down. He was In ICU for four months and was in the hospital a total of nine months. During these nine months, Dr. Danda and Dr. Chimata oversaw Bob’s kidney care. He was placed on dialysis. Dr. Danda and/or Dr Chimata were there daily to oversee his dialysis and his overall medical treatment. They worked with a team of 5 other specialist to insure Bob received the best treatment possible.
After his release from the hospital, Bob received his Dialysis treatment from Liberty Dialysis. He was a patient at Liberty Dialysis from August 2007 thru September 2008. During this time, Bob went to Liberty Dialysis three times a week for his treatments. Either Dr. Danda or Dr. Chimata were there faithfully to monitor Bob’s progress and recovery.
After Bob gained sufficient strength and an improved physical health, they coordinated getting Bob placed on a list to be considered for a Kidney Transplant. Dr. Danda and Dr. Chimata worked with the transplant medical team and Methodist Specialty Transplant Hospital in San Antonio to make this dream of a transplant a reality. In September 2008, Carol was successfully able to donate one of her kidneys to Bob.
Over these past 5 years, Dr. Danda and Dr. Chimata have kept close followup on Bob’s kidney functions and his overall health. They have returned after hours calls as needed. They have worked Bob in to their office’s busy schedule on an emergency basis if needed. Bob has had pneumonia 5 times since his transplant due in part to his compromised immune system. Dr. Danda and Dr. Chimata faithfully made their rounds during each of these hospital stays as well as to the rehab hospitals, where Bob was sent after each bout with pneumonia.
It has been 7 years since Bob first was placed on dialysis and 5 years since his transplant, Thanks to the excellent care received from Dr. Danda, Dr Chimata and their entire team at Dallas Renal Group and Liberty Dialysis, Bob is looking forward to a long healthy life.
