We want to remove hurdles and give doctors power and confidence to write the prescription and have a strong likelihood that patients can get the medicine.”
Harvey Richman, OD, FAAO, FCOVD, a PARx user and private practitioner from Manasquan, N.J., told PCON that this service helps him make better clinical decisions.
