” This is a great day for us because we needed this machine yesterday to service people in the Northern region. Now we are ready to do Laser surgery on patients and help them prevent further damage of the eye. ”
Dr. Patty Mopamboli
“ This system is efficient, we can easily retrieve patient information at anytime, rectify issues of missing results and extract various reports just at a click of a button.”
“The turnaround time for releasing the results is reducing , depending on the nature of the tests being carried out and was quick to state that issues of having ordered samples taking days before being processed are no-longer common because everyone wants to maintain a good record with the system and always have the pressure to clear out outstanding assignments at the earliest opportune time possible.”
