Awesome place! New donors get paid $50.00 for each donation (first 4) and now they are offering an extra $5.00 for students who show their student iD cards. NOT to mention that they are the only center in the area that pays cash and not those stupid pre paid cards. Hands down the best center around

I wasted 5 hours waiting to donate only to be denied because of a medication I was on that had been approved by a nurse 3 hours prior. The place is disgusting. I watched personnel touching stuff, opening doors with their gloves without ever changing them-especially between blood checks. One of the personel basically tried to bribe one of my scripts from me. The place is filled with people who are strung out on drugs yet somehow they are able to donate because basically if you want to d...view moreonate who cares if you shot up heroin that morning- all you have to do is lie to the staff!!! This place is a joke. had someone ask me if I "bang dope" and someone else tell me not to donate when I"m messed up- which makes me laugh that I got denied because of a medication I'm on. I hope this place gets shut down--all they do is steal the blood of the poor.view less

In addition we are recognized as an industry leader.
Discrimination is when an individual is being denied the same inalienable rights that every other citizen is privy to. I have been completely denied any service or help from this donation center. Only single reason is because i have a sleeve tattoo on one arm. No other reason, except if i had another tattoo within a year after donating i cnt donate. So i said of i donate this once and do not return, then its guaranteed im not donating after a new tattoo... The reply i received was if i...view more didnt come back i would mot be profitable to them! Im a single father struggling. Im sure a needy person could use my donation to possibly save a life. Apparently, donating single parents who have sleeve tattoos are not profitable. Defeats the purpose of helping others and needing help yourself. Sign should read....anyone welcome, unless u have tattoos and wont be profitable enough....I have been humiliated and discriminated against by so-called professionals.view less
First and foremost, we would like to apologize that you felt discriminated by our center. Nevertheless, our staff followed FDA regulations regarding tattoos. We are regretful that you were unable to meet this criteria. However, we value each of our donors that assist us in our continuous effort to save lives.
I've been a long time plasma donor at CSL. I heard of this place from a friend. I was shocked by the difference. The staff is very professional and extremely friendly.
I am usually in and out in an hour. Much better than CSL where I waited for hours to donate and the staff is rude. Oh and they schedule appointments.
