They recently screwed me over. They had five of us come in for a screening only to tell us that we would not make it in and would be alternates in case somebody canceled or failed their labs. Phone screening should have told us this. I told them to shove their alternate status and to get me out of the study so I could screen for another study. Some lady called me later in the week telling me I did not even make it as an alternate but I would be an alternate alternate. This meant that I could wait in their lobby on check in day and then if one of the seven alternates did not show up then I would come in as an alternate. I told them I wanted out of that study ASAP. A new study came up for a September check in and paying 4k. I could not screen for that study because the dumb witch still had me in the system for the other study so I lost out on another study. Then on the day the group for the original study was supposed to check in, I get a call asking why I did not show up for check in. I said that I wasn't interested and the person yelled at me. Talk about a crazy place. Since it was almost three years since my last study there, I doubt that it will be along time until I screen there. I hear people have had better luck at Ohio Clinical. They usually have a few coke studies for healthy people a few times a year.
drove 100 miles to my medpace screening this morning. get there, they tell me it's cancelled, and that they emailed me, but i checked my emails and they didnt email me. on the other hand, it's possible that they tried to call me yesterday, battery was dead at the time. they still show the study on their web page.
this is just one more reminder to me to always call to verify screenings. not the first time i've made this mistake.
later edit: they rescheduled that study for december and i have a screening scheduled.
saturday november 7 is volunteer appreciation day, free lunch, door prizes etc. not really wporth flying to cincinnati for, but if you are there anyway stop in.
