An Australian abroad who had lost a packet of must-take anticoagulants and was in need of a quick solution, I discovered DrEd.com and placed an order, after some shopping around with other potential sources. Best possible outcome: DrEd.com's representative was friendly and quickly understood my situation; the price for supply-and-deliver was realistic and below those offered by competitors; action was immediate and delivery occurred just as they had stated. The well-designed tracking system was reassuring and told me just when to go to the nominated Post Office collection point. Top marks to DrEd.com
