Dr. Pintozzi & his staff were great. The lab personnel was another story. Just needed to pick up containers. Waited 45 minutes - still no help - left and picked up my containers at Metro South Medical Center where I waited 5 minutes. Reception at the lab in Beverly was loud as if a party was going on. - Not willing to stop private conversations to help me. - Will NEVER go there again!!! X was the lab recept.
