A Lasting Impact

As we reach another milestone of 15 years, we are pleased with the impact we continue to make.  Please take a moment to read the impact we’ve recently made:

“This was one of the best things I have done I my entire life. The study in which I was involved was interesting and worthwhile. The staff (every one of them) were, not only highly professional but, most importantly, extremely personable. From the moment I walked in on Day 1 till the day the study ended 20 weeks later, I felt part of the family–I felt as if I belonged. It was actually sad for the study to have ended. I have, however, been assured that something else will come up and I am already so looking forward to it. The facility is super clean, super comfortable and very homey. Thank you to everyone who was so kind to me.”
