A request I made re a fax # for Quest Labs took research on the part of staffer--Julio I believe it was. In any case, I was told it could take 10 or 15 minutes to complete the task, which it did. Not only was the task completed to my delight but Julio came back midway to apologize for delay and that he was working on it. Guess I'm not longer accustomed to good "consumer" services; a job very well done. As for Dr. Wolinsky, I cannot say enough good things!
