I've been on and off dialysis for a good part of my adult life. I cannot stress enough, just how wonderful the staff at DCI is. They are dedicated, caring and above all - they make the time there enjoyable (as enjoyable as they can, under the circumstances). I can say, without hesitation, I love this group of (mostly) women!
