    "It didn't take very long, probably a few weeks, to get the basics down. Almost immediately, I received a message from an RN at our hospital who mentioned as an addendum that my handwriting was beautiful and legible."
         - Janet M. Madill, M.D.

    "Barbara and Inga are not your Dad's handwriting teacher. They are totally awesome. They are right when they point out that paying attention to the aesthetics of handwriting is elevating (and saves you a ton of time in callbacks)."
         - Charles A. Kessler, M.D.

    "The hospital staff calls it a miracle. I can now communicate my ideas to other physicians. My wife tells me she can read my love letters. All of this accomplished by improving the legibility of my handwriting with the [Getty-Dubay] Handwriting Course."
        - Stephen Caplan, M.D., January, 2003 Golden Pen Award for Most Improved Legibility

    "OK. I admit it - I got Ds in penmanship in school. Inga and Barbara helped me a lot and it was fun. I can read all my own notes now and have a new appreciation for the handwritten word."
         - David Levin, M.D.
