Feels Like Home: A Nephrologist's Story
Dr. Vijay Jain has been treating patients with kidney disease since 1980. Many of his patients have been coming to him for years, so it’s no wonder there’s a family atmosphere at Unity Health System's dialysis centers.
“Dialysis takes a significant amount of our patients’ time,” Dr. Jain explains. Each session lasts three to four hours. A comfortable facility is important to Dr. Jain and the staff – and appreciated by patients.
Unity Dialysis Centers feature private patient treatment areas, remote-control TVs and Wi-Fi to help pass the time. There is also a large, comfortable waiting area.
Assuring patient comfort is important to overall health. “You have to have a positive outlook to cope with a chronic illness,” Dr. Jain explains. “A more positive attitude means you’re better able to take care of yourself and cope with your illness, which results in better medical outcomes.” Beautiful facilities, happier and healthier patients – what else can you say but, “Wow”?
Parking at Unity Dialysis Centers is free.
