Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) .. anybody have info on it?

A friend of mine was recently diagnosed with Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD).  Is this disease controllable?  What type of Doctor handles it?  A Nephrologist I guess versus a Urologist?  Is it hereditary in all generations or does it skip?

I found this info on MedHelp which is really helpful but was wondering if anybody else has more info to share.
