Patient Perspective

on Clinical Trials

“My experience with the Studies Department has been very, very good.  I come in and am seen almost immediately.  The doctors have been communicative, and kept me informed.  I responded almost immediately, and the gray I saw in my vision is almost completely gone.”

–  Clinical Trials Patient, Gary T.
