This alliance is what we strive for as Concierge Pharmacists, so we are grateful for the opportunity to be part of this great team."
"Follow instructions. It seems like an easy request. And yet, for a variety of understandable reasons, it is a difficult one for many chronic patients to honor when it comes to taking their medications. We are pleased to work in concert with industry leaders STAAR and RXVIP to make a real and measurable difference in the quest to improve medication adherence, help patients get better sooner, and forward to care givers, medical teams and pharmacy all the benefits that come with that," said Vaica Medical CEO Mr. Tomer Gofer.
