I`d like to know the name of the hospital in question.My son suffers from PKD.It went unnoticed after CT scans & several urinary infections.It was because of an accident that during surgery to repair any internal damage that the PKD was even noticed.Because my son didn`t have any insurance he was given very inferior treatment.I`m sure after all the tests that were run his urologist didn`t notice he suffered from PKD.He now has 1 kidney & I plan to obtain his records from his Dr. in Crystal River,Fl. & find out how this prominent surgeon could have missed the true diagnosis.He almost died from his motorcycle accident that his kidney was LOADED w/cysts.I`d like to know the hospital as to avoid it should he need a transplant.How could a hospital transplant a cancer riddled kidney into a person & not know the condition of that kidney.And to make matters worse,they have won the case.Any lawyers looking to sue the pants off this highly incapable Dr. that took care of my son.Thanks for listening.
