How Treatment Works
Dialysis patients receive treatments in three-to-four hour sessions, three
times a week. In the treatment process, blood is pumped through
special equipment that removes extra water, wastes and chemicals from the blood stream.
A licensed nurse closely monitors the treatment process and is available to answer questions. Staff also work closely with each patient’s doctor. When indicated, patients are referred to Rochester or Buffalo kidney transplant centers for evaluations by transplant teams.
The Lake Plains Dialysis Centers are open Monday through Saturday from 6 am to 5 pm, offering a generous range of times for treatment. The Batavia center also has evening hours.
The Lake Plains Dialysis Centers have free parking adjacent to the centers for easy access. Both centers are also on the ground floor level, affording easy access for people with walkers, wheelchairs or limited mobility.
Unlike many dialysis centers that restrict visitors, the Lake Plains Dialysis Centers allow visitors to accompany the patient. The centers only ask that people not visit if they have colds or are ill.
In addition to dialysis treatment, patients and their families can benefit from counseling offered at the centers, and dialysis support groups led by the center’s social worker. For more information about support groups, call Medina Memorial’s Community Partners at 585-798-6641 or 800-830-3627.
