I received a phone call from an employee thanking us for offering the tests that we have been scheduling. After completing two of the tests, they found that they have a serious issue that were not aware of and are currently seeking treatment and follow up visits with specialists. They were very grateful that they had the opportunity to participate for free and loved the convenience and professionalism of the individuals administering the tests. Keep up the good work! You are making a difference!
