A patient with advanced chronic kidney disease may choose kidney transplant as an option in lieu of dialysis. Transplantation is when a new kidney is received to provide adequate kidney function. Once you have decided to seek transplant evaluation, your PKA physicians will refer you to a UNOS-certified transplant center. Currently, the nearest transplant centers are located in Norfolk and Richmond.
A new kidney is a big commitment and responsibility. The long-term success of a transplant kidney depends on continuous care management through the life of the organ. Our PKA transplant nephrologist will meticulously coordinate care with the transplant center to offer this care closer to home. We can offer guidance and medical care, in coordination with the transplant center, in the areas of:
- Laboratory Testing and Imaging
- Rejection prevention and treatment
- Infection prevention and treatment
- Management of other conditions related to your transplant
Please speak with your physicians about your options for kidney disease including transplant.

Dr. Ayodeji and his staff have always provided me with professionalism and great customer service. Even in the midst of my accepting my situation, Dr. Ayodeji was the most understanding physician I have ever dealt with. He truly cares and understands. I appreciate him in many ways as a doctor.
There is a genuine concern with my medical care. Also the staff has always worked along with me in case of an emergency.
I’ve always liked (Peninsula Kidney Associates) and will continue to come. I feel relieved to know I have had the best of care.
I always leave with the satisfaction of feeling I had the best assessment of my condition and the best intervention. I would say I am a miracle with the treatment I receive.
For me , I would rather come here than any of my other physicians.
Dr. Wang is always concerned and aware of my healthcare. Even when we call about questions, she takes the time to make any necessary adjustments.
I loved the service and staff kindness.
