To help patients feel more comfortable and to create relationships, Tampa General Hospital created the Hispanic Kidney Transplant Program.

Dr. Beltran was interviewed by Bay News 9 as he has been working on launching this program in the past six months.

During the interview, Dr. Beltran stated: "Communication is most important between the physician and the patient because the patient is basically giving us all their hope and their expectations, so we have to be knowledgeable and respectful of their background, their cultural characteristics, their beliefs, and even their language."

We are very proud of Dr. Beltran and all the FKP nephrologists who help make this program happen.
