    I am very impressed with the entire donor team. Everyone is very professional, organized and great communicators. I had a top notch, first class experience and I know when I give my kidney to someone in need, it is in the best hands to hopefully save their live. With OSU Wexner it is possible. Thank you for your AMAZING team! Gen.
