Testimonials

Here's what some of our customers have to say.

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!

Kimberly P.

Results in under 60 min – outstanding.
