Because of a surge in patients and a shortage of dialysis clinics, Waialua resident Nestor Marcos’ dialysis treatments begin at 8:15 p.m. and end after midnight, at least three days a week. “Afterwards I’m tired. I feel weak,” said Marcos, who received treatment Friday at Liberty Dialysis Waipahu. “The worst part is I have to drive at night. … I get home at about 1:30 a.m. It’s dangerous. Right now, no more choice.”
