We’ve all been there. Feeling like death, you made it out of the house to the doctor’s office. But now, all you want to do is go home and get back in bed.
Too bad now you’ve still got to go get your ‘script filled.
For Torontonians sick and tired of, well, being sick and tired, there’s a new alternative from a Toronto start-up.
Newly launched web-based app, Pilly.ca lets users in Toronto proper (and soon Mississauga and Brampton) take a photo of their new prescriptions, (or a bottle label in needing refilling), then schedule free same day delivery.
Prescriptions are filled by forward-thinking pharmacists working at licensed independent pharmacies in Toronto (currently Woodgreen Pharmacy at Queen East and Yonge). These pharmacists pride themselves on being responsive by email (whereas most still deal in telephones and fax machines) and with each prescription placed with Pilly, they provide a personal follow-up call to confirm details and answer questions.
