"Everyone was so truly wonderful to me. ..everyone from the doctors, to the nurses, to the people who drew my blood. ..I truly felt exceptional, that what I was doing was important and extraordinary. I was treated with the utmost respect and dignity"
"I was closely monitored for any adverse reactions and the prompt return phone calls are what really made this an easy experience for me. If it weren't for the constant reassurance of all of you, I'm not sure it would have been as good as an experience."
