Physical Examination by your Primary Care Physician
For you to be a living donor, you must have had a physical examination by your PCP within the past year. We require all our living donors to have a PCP who oversees their care. Please do not have any testing done specifically for the possible donation. If you are able to donate, we’ll order these tests for you.
Returning the Forms to Us
After you finish the paperwork, please return it to us. Before you send it back, make sure that it contains:
- Maine Medical Center Pre-Registration Form
- Medical Release Form
- Living Donor History Form
- Consent to be Evaluated to Become a Living Donor
What’s the Next Step?
After we receive the paperwork and are able to get your medical records, these will be reviewed by a transplant physician and the living donor coordinator. If you are found to be healthy, we will mail you a kit to have genetic testing and kidney function testing done. If there are any issues with your medical history, Roxanne Taylor will call you.
Please feel free to contact Amie Neikirk if you have any questions about the enclosed forms or the living donor evaluation process. Roxanne Taylor, our Living Donor Coordinator, would be happy to answer any medical questions.
