A/C Recommendation - SF Area

My 01S has a slow AC leak. I thought it was fixed last fall when the dye covered expansion valve was replaced. Now, 5 months later, the refrigerant is low. I've taken the car to two AC specialty shops and a Porsche dealer. No one seems to have identified exactly why the car is losing refrigerant.

Can anyone recommend a great AC shop in the San Francisco bay area> Your recommendations are greatly appreciated.

PS: The main reason I'm asking is that I am trying to avoid paying more in diagnostic fees than the cost of the repair. I'm already into this for about $900 inclusing replacing the expansion valve.

When I lived in Palo Alto, I used to go High Performance House in Redwood City, problems were always fixed, and Rich is a straight up guy.
