Will prescription drug sales over the Internet eventually threaten pharmacists’ business?
Asked at Checkers, 2300 La. on March 7, 2005
“Yeah, insurance companies are dominating that issue. I already have to mail-order my prescription.”
“No, because there will always be a segment of the population that needs personal attention - especially seniors.”
“I guess it could go both ways. People are probably always going to buy from pharmacies as well as the Internet. I don’t think it’s really that big of a threat.”
“It would be better for me if I ordered over the Internet. It might hurt pharmacists a little bit, but not too much.”
