Q: How do I get on the waiting list to receive a liver?

A: Make an appointment for an initial consultation. If you and your physicians feel it is appropriate for you to continue, a comprehensive, two-day evaluation will be scheduled. Two weeks after that, the transplant team will meet to review all the information that was gathered and, if there are no outstanding issues, your name will be placed on the waiting list.
