    How long does it take to get dialysis treatment? Can you just move there and you will be set up or do you have to wait and for how long, before you can get dialysis?

    It all depends on your GFR (kidney function level) and the center and whether they have chairs available at a particular center.
    If the center closest to you doesn't have room, you might have to travel to a different one.

    Discuss this with Dr and have him/her set everything up ahead of time at a center close (or the closest to you)
    so when you move you can start treatment right away.

    Take care
    I received the GIFT OF LIFE on Nov 9, 2010 thanks to my wonderful donor Laura and her family!

      I'd like to travel to Vancouver BC, is there a Davita dialysis center there? Or if not can I use my Care more health insurance for treatment there?
