Comments from other presentations by Gigi:

Excellent presentation. Met my expectation. Appropriate to my clinical setting and knowledge will assist with my post grad education

Personally I have refreshed my knowledge of lab results, this presentation was very good.

Gigi has a great ability at sharing her knowledge to make things easily understood.

Comprehensive explanation of everything. Would love to attend other talks. Hope there is a way for all this information to get to all healthcare providers.
