Patient Testimonials

Ignacio Asperas


Ignacio Asperas, prostate cancer, cancer trial participant
“I had absolutely no worries about my quality of care on a trial.”

Diagnosed in the pre-Internet days, Ignacio Asperas visited a local library to learn about prostate cancer. Thankfully his research led him to oncologist Dr Daniel Petrylak, who has treated Ignacio for more than a decade. A couple of years ago, Dr Petrylak suggested a clinical trial. This time, Ignacio could utilize the Web for information. The combination of trust in his physician and the knowledge supplied by his own investigation made the decision to go ahead an easy one. He says, “My doctor and his staff are very patient and they always ask if I have any questions. I had absolutely no worries about my quality of care on a trial.”
