Patient Testimonials:

 

I appreciate the Heartland facility for so many reasons. The location is a major item for me, living in CArthage, travel especially in the winter is a major issue. The nurses are excellant and having one special person each visit is a big plus. The know ones issues well so there are few surprises.  D.E. 2014

 

Heartland Kidney Center is by far one of the best units I have been to . The staff of nurses and techs are very caring to every patient here. Even the doctors are the best around and truly care for us as people not just as patients.  Danielle Thomas 2014

 

I have been to coming Heartland for three years. They make you feel good. They treat you like a real person not like a patient. I have had the same nurse for 3 years now and she knows what is going on with me always. I would tell anyone if you have to have dialysis come to Heartland. K. Wayne 2014
