Variety of testing options and wide appointment availability first come to mind. Excellent staff interactions.

Testing Customer

I had to get this test because the first one I did elsewhere didn’t come back in time for my flight home. When I arrived for my appointment and told the staff my situation they were so compassionate and assured me I would have the results in time for my flight. Expensive, but worth it for the peace of mind!
