    Diane Behall, I've gone to her I don't know how many times, at least a half a dozen, is an excellent, excellent acupuncturist. I have had acupuncture elsewhere, so I do have comparison. She is absolutely excellent. She really knows what she's doing. She's efficient, she's...she's pleasant, she's...she's very nice and fortunately, she did manage to get to her time increased because I feel the, her, the acupuncture, actual acupuncture time should have been increase, rather than just a half an hour. So, I give her credit for that and and she's just terrific and I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Diane.
