Cyrus Cryst has been treating and following my care since the early 1990's. He has always been easy to discuss issues with and is very knowledgeable and understanding. With his guidance and exceptional care I have been able to keep a functioning transplant for over 38 years. I can't imagine him not on my care team.

As I said, although somewhat a joke, Dr. Cryst walks on water. He has followed my health issues before, during and after my transplant. His knowledge and ability to stay on top of various inconveniences, (kidney stone and multiple UTIs) gives me confidence that we will get through this.
