Do you have trouble finding medicine from one place?
My experience when while ordering though a conventional pharmacy was that sometimes all the medicine in my prescription, cannot be bought from one place. But Healthnet has gone the extra mile in getting all the items in my list. At times Healthnet would offer reasonable substitutes after talking to the doctor who prescribed if necessary. There are many customers who have reviewed Healthnet to be a super responsive online pharmacy with excellent customer service in this regard.
How does Healthnet deliver medicine?
Now you know how drastic the Sri Lankan weather can get! With spells of heat followed by spells of rain. Medicine, in general, is susceptible to the environment they are stored in and should be stored below 30º Celsius and airtight containers. Drugs like insulin and injectables should be stored between 2 – 8 º Celsius. Else, the moisture or heat could change the properties in the medicine and be less effective. So imagine how your medicine is at a risk when they're being transported in a usual delivery bike.
When you order medicine through Healthnet, they deliver your medicine in an Air Conditioned vehicle ensuring the temperature accordingly. With medicines neatly marked and packed. Check out this picture of one of the many happy customers who had posted on FB for their wonderful service.
