Without doubt Pauline and her staff have provided the most professional phlebotomy service I have ever come across. They are highly skilled phlebotomists that can deal with any difficulties that can arise during sampling, and help to make the most nervous patient feel at ease. provides a reliable service that I have recommended to other colleagues, and will continue to do so."

We called on the services of Pauline Connell of when we were organising a major training programme/ patient clinic for The Walsh Institute of Illinois Chicago headed by Dr Bill Walsh for autistic and mental health patients in Dublin.Laboratory tests were required for all patients and the job was logistically quite complex. Pauline's experience and common sense was a huge advantage and patients remarked to us how wonderfully kind and professional she was, especially the parents of the children with autism. We would highly recommend the services of Pauline and ”.
