Other Comments: 

Since version 1.03, great effort has been made to incorporate accessibility in to this app. The developer has taken a demo of Voice Over and utilized the unique way Voice Over interacts with the iPhone to enable the basics of accessibility to be in the newest version. this app, for anyone who is a patient, allows the patient to see all data without assistance by someone who is sighted. This app allows the complete view for someone who is blind and uses Voice Over completely to see all that anyone else with sight can see. Congratulations to the Mayo Clinic staff who was receptive to constructive criticism and made this app usable for everyone.
