New Company Offers Delivery of Diabetes Medical Supplies
Home delivery is now an option for getting diabetes medical supplies. And better still, it's free delivery. The staff of a new company called Diabetic Life Supply will hand-deliver accessories for managing diabetes -- from glucose meters and insulin pumps to test strips and needles.
The co-founder of the business, Robb Miller, says the cost of delivery is not passed on to the customer. And the convenience factor extends beyond delivery.
"I think what makes it important to a patient is accountability. If you pick up the phone and call the out-of-state companies, you don't get a human being that answers the phone. If you have a problem with the order, you have to ship it back. They have to ship you a new one. It takes several days. We respond within 24 hours," said Miller.
Miller says he wants to make sure the company is accessible to the Hispanic market -- having lost a close Hispanic friend to diabetes.
They eventually hope to expand their deliveries to rural areas including Pahrump.
Diabetic Life Supply is also working with the Diabetes Treatment Center at Desert Springs Hospital to develop a diabetes-friendly guide for dining out in Las Vegas.
Here is the contact information for the new company: Diabetic Life Supply at 702-966-9500.
