What Our Research Patients are Saying
"I was on edge when I first went to DCOL Research because of the sensitive nature of my diagnosis. Upon arrival to the research office I was treated very kindly and professionally as soon as I signed in. The Research Coordinator was friendly and compassionate and made me feel at ease. I was informed about the trial and they ensured that I had a clear understanding of the information. During all my visits I felt at ease and informed. The Research Coordinator is very professional as is the Lab Coordinator. It is always a smooth process and the staff is confident and friendly. The study doctor is also helpful and always asks if I have any problems or concerns, just like the staff."
