Yes, you could improve that the things be... if were trying to call them to make an appointment. You have to be put on hold for 10 or 15 minutes, that could be changed. So people will be a little bit happier, okay.

There was not enough communication in the new changes regarding the Laboratory, they did not communicate that an appointment had to be made only because the person who was there at that moment did not even take the time to look at who was speaking saying that she did not have time to answer because she had too much work to go to the office to get an appointment.

I would only recommend PIH because the bar is set so low. In other words, I've had other providers that were a lot worse than PIH.
