Patient Comments (1)
in Lexington, KY |
My husband and I are both patients of Dr. Sawaya. Several of my husband's cysts had ruptured in his polycystic kidneys causing hemorrhage. Both kidneys were surgically removed 6/2000. Life expectancy was predicted at two years. It is now 5/2017 and he continues to do very well under Dr. Sawaya's compassionate care. I developed kidney failure due to years of uncontrolled high blood pressure due to caring for my mathematician and Asperger's challenged husband.
