Kidney Korner: The DialySuites Care Team

Starting dialysis is a huge lifestyle change. Additionally, it means seeing new faces and trusting new members of your care team. Let’s get to know who is involved in your care at DialySuites and how they help you on your journey. 


Your nephrologist, the kidney specialist, is the person who will prescribe your treatment and monitor your ongoing care. They will visit at least once a month to assess your health and the effectiveness of the dialysis prescription, making changes as necessary.

Dialysis Nurse

The dialysis nurses are responsible for overseeing the entirety of your care and the effectiveness of your treatment in conjunction with your nephrologist. They also provide monthly education to all patients to increase understanding of the treatment process, patient rights and responsibilities, dialysis access care, among a variety of other topics. 

Patient Care Technician (PCT)

Your PCT is going to be the teammate that will be starting and ending your treatment. They assist with taking your vitals, connecting and disconnecting you, and monitoring your machine throughout your treatment. 

Social Worker

The social worker plays a vital role in your care team. Your social worker is responsible for helping to navigate your and your family through the changes dialysis can bring. They are able to help find community resources and support.


Your dietitian is responsible for assisting you in finding the foods that meet your needs. Your dietitian will review your labs and make recommendations based on your personal needs. Additionally, they will work with your physician to find a medication regimen that works best for you to get you to your goals.
