"I was initially attracted to nephrology before I ever attended medical school. Working as a nurse, I cared for a 12-year-old boy with kidney failure. We provided life-saving peritoneal dialysis, but at that time (the late 1970s) such therapy severely compromised a patient’s quality of life. I was thrilled when he received a successful kidney transplant, enabling him to come off dialysis and resume a more normal life. Even after all these years I am still excited when a child gets the special gift of a new kidney."


Dr.Carol Hanevold is an understanding,caring,compassionate, & kind doctor. She wants the best for the patients under her care. Striving & working hard to get her patitients better & give the upmost quility care. I came to her when I was only 16 years of age;now 28years old,a dear friend & I still consider her one of the most best former doctor(s) I had in my care. I would highly recommed her to anyone looking for the upmost highest quality care. Thank you for your time.

Dr. Coral Hanevold is an outstanding doctor. She recognizes that the parents and siblings are very much affected by the patient's illness. As a Social worker and mother of a child whose kidneys failed this aspect of Dr. Hanevold's professional care was very important and life-saving for my family. Seattle Children's gained a wonderful, caring and thorough doctor. I consider her a friend and keep in touch.
