Stage 4 Kidney Disease
2014 was the worst year of my life. Turned 67 and felt 87. This was the year I was told I had stage 4 kidney disease. My creatine was 3.89, my GFR was 16, my urologist said I should remove the prostate and my nephrologist said I would be on dialysis sooner or later. Wow, what a bunch of cheery bastards all with a pat on the back and a warm “I really care” facemask.
Some friends told me about Dr. Hino. I wrote him about my condition and he wrote back within 24 hours with an encouraging response. Two weeks later (I had to get through Christmas and new years) I drove down in a rainstorm with a temperature of 103 and with the knowledge this was the only hope I had. I met Dr. Hino the next day and immediately knew I was in the right place. After a few minutes of talking with Dr. Hino I was inspired and looking forward to the future. I really felt that I was in the presence of greatness. After two weeks of treatments I went home feeling much better, having much more energy and health. When I went back in six weeks my creatine had dropped to 2.1. My latest blood test in the November it was down to 1.6. I will continue on until my numbers are better than before I got sick.
I have referred several people to Dr. Hino. Everyone who went has improved. Those that did not go, I wish them well but I’m sorry that they did not get to experience what I and others have experienced.
Dr. Hino is one of the few individuals, let alone doctors, who cares more and delivers more than would ever be expected. He has given me a new life and I am eternally grateful.
