Some of our clients already purchase prescription products through several sources other than our clinic. When clients don't, it is not normally because they think they have no choice, they do so because of convenience and trust in our clinic. In almost all cases, prescriptions cost our clients about the same or less when they purchase from us than when they purchase from other (legitimate) sources. Additional red tape is not going to serve our clients well in the long run. If any thing, it could end up resulting in an increase in cost to the client because of increased time and overhead costs to the clinic.
