Ripoff Report Verified™ REVIEW:

EDitor’s UPDATE: Positive rating and recognition has been given to Cell Science Systems / ALCAT for its commitment to excellence in customer service.

Ripoff Report’s discussions with Cell Science Systems have uncovered an ongoing commitment by the company to total client satisfaction. This means that clients can expect that the company will work towards finding a mutually satisfactory resolution to any complaints or concerns. Cell Science Systems listens carefully to client concerns and sees them as an opportunity to learn from past mistakes and become more efficient as a company in the services offered and the support for those services.

Cell Science Systems Management Team has informed us that their personal philosophy is that clients are a precious resource. Cell Science Systems feels it is critical to listen to his clients and respond properly. By always putting customers first, Cell Science Systems hopes to maintain a successful enterprise both now and for many years to come.

Another top executive of the company told us that Mr. Deutsch’s personal business philosophy is based on the premise that, "strives to add value in its services as they understand that a successful business model is based on value-added services, and client care”. Cell science Systems mission statement says it all: "Our goal is to provide our clients the best quality, value and professional excellence in the industry.” One of the other things Ripoff Report learned in the course of its review is that typical customer feedback reads: “Cell Science Systems truly communicate all aspects of the job in a timely and effective manner. We are very pleased with the responsiveness that Cell Science Systems' employees show us. They are serious about meeting commitments, and deliver on all their promises.”

The information provided in this report is based on comments made by Samy Puccio during an on-site inspection held by a third-party verification company with no biases toward Cell Science Systems, ALCAT.



Cell Science Systems, ALCAT is a company specializing in providing laboratory services for healthcare practitioners, functional medicine nutritionist fields looking at food sensitivities, or looking at markets that affect health. “We had a lot of success with our testing method for food sensitivity testing,” states Samy Puccio, a representative of Cell Science Systems. Leads for the company are generated using a marketing program that involves online advertising, direct mail and trade shows. The team at Cell Science Systems sends out marketing materials, field representatives and they call physicians to acquire new business. The typical sales process begins with a physician signing up to use Cell Science Systems’ services and the tests they provide. “We are a lab type service that is integrated into a doctor’s office. A physician to laboratory type business environment,” states Mr. Puccio.

Cell Science Systems Customer Care & Complaint Resolution

At times, a patient may not feel satisfied with the services they’ve received. Mr. Puccio states that sometimes people receive the food sensitivity results and will confuse it with a food allergy test. “Some people will callus and tell us that they have an allergy to something and tell us that we did not pick it up and we will have to get them a clarification with the test. We have a fully functional laboratory for the nutritional team. Their focus is to help the doctors who may not understand what the results mean,” states Mr. Puccio. However, this is not a common complaint. To avoid any misunderstandings, Cell Science Systems provides webinars and a video series to educate the healthcare providers, as well as provide a 30-minute consultation with every test result. Mr. Puccio states that after receiving the consultation, complaining clients are usually satisfied and feel the situation is resolved. “If you look at our Better Business Bureau rating, we got an A- rating with them and have always done our best to resolve to the customer’s satisfaction,” he states.

To ensure their client’s continued satisfaction, the team at Cell Science Systems conducts customer surveys and strive to stay in constant contact with the physicians to learn whether or not their patients are satisfied with the testing methods and results. “Some of the new testing that we do is based on the physicians’ requests and comments,” states Mr. Puccio.

In response to a complaint lodged against Cell Science Systems on Ripoff Report, Mr. Puccio states, “It is an ex-employee and it appears that the complaint is personal. We have an individual that was terminated due to a criminal act and is currently under investigation.” To avoid this situation in the future, Cell Science Systems has intensified their background check process and has also reassured their employees that they have an “open door” policy in their HR department. In addition, Mr. Puccio states that they also received a complaint from an employee through the Fair Labor Department, which involved a dispute between the employee’s salary and hourly wage. However, Mr. Puccio states that this issue was amicable resolved and settled out of court.

Mr. Puccio and his team recognize the value of working with Ripoff Report and the Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation and Customer Satisfaction Program, and the platform it provides for businesses and clients or employees to interact and resolve issues. “We are showing our commitment to satisfaction, showing customers we care about our reputation with our business partners and employees,” states Mr. Puccio.



Cell Science Systems – What is The Alcat Test?

The Alcat Test is a lab based immune stimulation test in which a patient’s WBC's are challenged with various substances including foods, additives, colorings, chemicals, medicinal herbs, functional foods, molds and pharmaceutical compounds. The patient’s unique set of responses help to identify substances that may trigger potentially harmful immune system reactions.

The Alcat Test objectively classifies a patient’s response to each test substance as reactive, borderline or non-reactive. Based on these classifications, a customized elimination/rotation diet may be designedto effectively eliminate the specific triggers of chronic immune system activation. By reducing this ongoing burden – and in particular, by reversing the sustained and destructive inflammation it produces – normal body functions and immune system balance can be improved.

Ripoff Report was pleased to learn that Cell Science Systems past and current approach to business is focused on its pledge to total commitment towards client and employee satisfaction.


,br> STATED IMPROVEMENTS FROM CELL SCIENCE SYSTEMS

"With an ongoing commitment to customer and employee satisfaction Cell Science Systems continues to solicit feedback from its customers and employees. Periodic customer satisfaction surveys are done and have yielded exceptional results in the past as well as an internal 'Positive Workforce Committee' to garner feedback directly from Cell Science Systems employees.”

Cell Science Systems recognizes that complaints posted on Ripoff Report (whether true or not) are issues that need to be addressed, not ignored. If handled correctly, complaints can be valuable learning opportunities. With the feedback generated by Ripoff Report’s review, Cell Science Systems has made organizational changes allowing its clients and employees a more streamlined approach to problem resolution and a commitment to a great client experience.

Read about Ripoff Report Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation & Customer Satisfaction Program, a program that benefits the consumer, assures them of complete satisfaction and confidence when doing business with a member business. this program works.

As a matter of policy, when a business becomes a member of the Corporate Advocacy Programthey agree to allow Ripoff Report to contact every client who filed a complaint so they can make things right with them. In order to confirm that the complaints were resolved, Ripoff Report is copied on all responses so we can insure that the member business did right by their customer.

ABOUT THE RIPOFF REPORT BELOW:

Ripoff Report would like to let readers know that Ripoff Report emailed this customer so the member business could make things right with them. They never responded to Ripoff Reports request to help them. When a business joins the Corporate Advocacy Program, Ripoff Report emails everyone from the past so the member business can make things right with them. Of course, everything within reason.

According to Cell Science Systems, the author of the slanderous posts is a former employee who is currently under investigation by the State Attorney’s Office for Felony Grand Theft punishable by 15 years in prison for embezzling/stealing a large sum of money from the company. We made the unfortunate mistake of hiring this person in a position of trust as our IT director and were defrauded; and, as we found out later, so were several other companies. Since we chose to prosecute him for his crime, he has begun a defamation and slander campaign against our management group. We intend to prosecute him to the fullest extent that the law allows and also file a defamation suit against him. None of the allegations above are true, we have been in the business of helping patients for several years. We welcome any inquiries and would be happy to furnish further details.

Do you trust your health to them?  If only one had a criminal background it would not seem strange, but almost each one?


Do you think this the first person is now defaming the company?  Who do you trust, the company trying to back-peddle or the first complaint?

Check the cases, they are real.

They have been in business for over 20 years and for some reason their ALCAT test is still not accepted by the general medical associations.  Conspiracy, come one, the science is shaky at best.

If the few patients that do get better seem to do so because they recommend a wholesome diet?  Is the testing helping them get healthier or just eating less packaged foods?

False accusations

AUTHOR: Sp - ()

In response to the commentaries written above (which upon observation of the writing style of both, were penned by the same author ) we, the management group of the company mentioned above, would like to respond accordingly. The author is a former employee who is currently under investigation by the State Attorneys Office for Felony Grand Theft punishable by 15 years in prison for embezzling/stealing a large sum of money from the company. We made the unfortunate mistake of hiring this con man and thief in a position of trust as our IT director and were defrauded; and, as we found out later, so were several other companies. Since we chose to prosecute him for his crime, he has begun a defamation and slander campaign against our management group by posting to website such as this where the original post cannot be removed even if the author is found to be libel and a court order issued. We intend to prosecute him to the fullest extent that the law allows and also file a defamation suit against him. None of the allegations above are true, we have been in the business of helping patients for several years. We welcome any inquiries and would be happy to furnish further details.

#4 UPDATE EX-employee responds

I used to work for alcat

AUTHOR: Anonymous - ()

And I can say that everything this blogger posted is 100% truthful. Is it a mans world in that office and women are treated like garbage. If you aren't a "10" you will not be promoted or asked to go to lunch with the mgmt team.  There are 100's of sexist jokes made daily about all the ladies working there and most quit soon after being hired . If you are pretty you get the full benefit of the doubt and they keep you on longer.

As long as lee Rolnick, Sammy puccio and Phillip Reitz like you and your body you have nothing to worry about.. Maybe someone should call there wives and let them know how they speak and act towards women. Maybe someone should call the organization for women's rights.. If they offered me 2 million dollars a year to go back and work for them I would not even think twice .. I would never gonback there for any money in the world....and thats thh god's honest truth...

The guys are sexist pigs..they also hack into our phones and download our personal pics and pass em around.. I know one of our ex computer guys could confirm this but I do not want to drag his name into this as he was nothing but a professional to all of us. hevwarned us of what was goimg on so wevwantbtonthank him very much..

Again stay away from alcat/cell science systems in Deerfield beach Florida.. It's a very sad day that I had to write this, as I had no where else to go as our HR mngr was a fragile old lady that had no say in anything. Whatever our CFO Phillip Reitz and our VP sammy Puccio told her-that's how it went.

With deepest sympathy
