How often does the doctor become the patient? Unfortunately, Mark Wedel, MD, like the protagonist in the movie “The Doctor,” had to live this transformation. When he was told that his kidneys were failing and that he needed a transplant, Dr. Wedel had no idea where to begin, what to do, or what to ask. After carefully researching his options, he decided to write a book to better explain to other patients and health care professionals what they need to know to prepare. Lori and Dr. Wedel go though many of the things you need to understand before you get a transplant.
