Mayo Clinic Again

My neurologist decided he wanted to see an old MRI and asked me if I could get the Mayo Clinic to send it to him on CD, so I went to their website and found the number for medical records. I called and got a very nice lady who told me I just needed to fax them a form and directed me to where I could download the form. I told her it might be back in 2004 or so and asked if that would be a problem and she very pleasantly said it would not. Her tone of voice was sort of, "Why would you think that's a problem? Have you never heard of computers?" My doctor got the CD in a few days, and there was no charge for the service.

I don't think any of this is actually all that remarkable; I am familiar with computers. I just think it's rather pleasant. I have a nephew who works at Mayo and says he likes it, and I keep seeing examples of why he does.
