We haven’t had any issues since ONGC have been looking after us, which was just over a year ago. Being a basic user of technology I find It great that the team at ONGC understands that not everyone is I.T. savvy. They explain the issue and fix the problem in “plan” language or is it “dumb it down” just so I can understand.JAN – PRACTICE MANAGER AT ADVANCED SURGICAL & SKIN CANCER
