Ever wondered about those on-line pharmacies? Drugs like Viagra and even narcotics prescribed without even a face-to-face office visit? Peter Ax is the CEO of KwikMed and claims it’s the only on-line pharmacy to have been granted regulatory approval in the U.S. (by the state of Utah in this case).
Peter’s mission is to use the Internet as a mechanism to reduce the cost of healthcare. But in this Larry’s World interview, host Larry Magid doesn’t let him off easy. Why is it, Larry asks, that three of the four drugs sold by KwikMed are for the treatment of erectile dysfunction? And who are these doctors who will prescribe them without an office visit and with no co-payments or other fees?
