    I was just wondering what hospitals or doctors are the best when it comes to treating or dealing with Hepatitis C in the United States? A friend of mine who lives in Kuwait is asking because her mom is diagnosed with Hepatitis C, she got a chance to treat her mom in the United States as a the facilities in Kuwait are not able to provide any more treatment that will help her diagnoses. Thanks.

    Georgetown University Hospital in Washington D.C. is a highly qualified hospital for treatment and transplant due to Liver Disease and Failure.

    Presbyterian Hospital in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania also has a nice Liver ICU, although the "family waiting" areas have gone down in quality dramatically.

    Best of luck and health to you and yours!!
