      I received an incorrect bill from a local pathology lab and called their large national billing service today.  I was put on hold and – to my delightful surprise – listened to a recording of information about the dangers and prevalence of melanoma and about sun safety.  I was quite impressed with the wide audience this simple strategy will reach and also pleased to be spared from the usual elevator music or sales pitch.

          I would be more impressed by a pathologist actually  answering  the phone.
