"The Grillo Center continues to be a reliable and dependable resource of health information for me. Over the past three years I have utilized your services extensively. Thank you to everyone involved with such a wonderful community service."
"I am not confident in my own Internet searching abilities, especially in locating accurate, reliable medical sites. The information you helped with arrived promptly and was most helpful. It gives me questions to ask and discussion points for my medical provider visits. Thank you!!!"
"Thank you so much for your kindness, work, understanding, search and support."
"This is a great service that you provide to the community. It used to be that we had to rely on only doctors to let us know about medical research. Often times, because doctors are busy, they miss or don't ell the patient something that would be helpful in coping with a new disease or condition. This research will assist me in asking questions when I go to the doctor regarding tests that I may need to diagnose complications which I am already noticing with my newly diagnosed Celiac Sprue disease."
"Very helpful-volunteer took the necessary time to locate many articles on my research question and was especially helpful in extracting the most relevant from a vast amount of material."
"Excellent, kind and caring support...I felt comfortable and relaxed. I will not hesitate to use this information resource center again."
