My husbands' PCP (since 1998) referred him to a kidney specialist AFTER he reached stage 4 CKD

More details to this question:
I hope we're not too late for a possible suit. My husband was referred to the kidney doctor in September of 2013-note on his medical record states 'renal failure'. That was the first time this doctor ever mentioned that something may be going bad with his kidneys. 9/2013- my husband was already stage IV. He has been on dialysis only since 11/2016, but is now stage V.
