EMERYVILLE, Calif. (April 15, 2019) – NovaBay® Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NYSE American: NBY), a biopharmaceutical company, announces a new pharmacy partnering program in a continued effort to ensure all patients in the U.S. have reliable and affordable access to prescription Avenova®. NovaBay has recently added six new pharmacies as Avenova channel partners. The company’s pharmacy partners serve patients across the U.S., and together ensure patients in all 50 states have convenient access to Avenova.
Eyecare professionals can call 800-890-0329 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about their local pharmacy partner.
By contracting directly with these pharmacies, patients are guaranteed to receive the best pricing and quality service when filling their Avenova prescriptions. “Our commitment to a quality patient experience, along with our expanding national presence ensures every patient who wants Avenova can obtain it at the best price,” said Dan Richards, CEO of Meds In Motion Pharmacy, one of Avenova’s channel partners.
NovaBay’s pharmacy partners enhance the process for eye care professionals to easily and confidently prescribe Avenova. This is vital for physicians like Dr. Stephen Wilmarth of Wilmarth Eye and Laser Center in Roseville, Calif. who rely on Avenova for their patients. “Avenova is the mainstay of my dry eye practice. There’s no clear alternative. Even if patients are not improving on other treatments, I find Avenova works. Patient acceptance is very high because Avenova feels so soothing immediately upon application,” said Dr. Wilmarth.
Avenova is an eye care product formulated with our proprietary, stable and pure form of hypochlorous acid. Avenova is designed for removal of the microorganisms and debris that contribute to conditions such as meibomian gland dysfunction, dry eye and blepharitis. Avenova is marketed to optometrists and ophthalmologists throughout the U.S. by NovaBay’s direct salesforce.
