Many of us in the HealthCare Industry want to be able to do more for our Senior population living at home. With the facts we have today, here at PillBoxTalk we have created a list of local Pharmacies in San Diego County that are able to provide delivery services of medications to those staying in place at home. This is a preliminary list and we will add/edit as the days and weeks progress.
