SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ – Twin City Pharmacy and Surgical of South Plainfield now offers the convenience, security, and reliability of an app. Through the PocketRX app – available to Apple and Android users – customers can renew prescriptions, set reminders to take medications, select pickup or delivery, and stay up-to-date with daily health care news right from their phone and/or tablet. 

“Everyone is busy. This app will allow them access to us after hours. Prescriptions will immediately be entered into our system and go into the queue for us to fill, which will speed up the process,” said Twin City’s Linda Chiu, PharmD, adding, “Customers will not have to wait for us to open in the morning or sit through the prompts when they call us.” 

According to Chiu, customers who utilize the app will still receive the same personal, one-on-one attention Twin City prides itself on offering. “We will call them once the prescription is ready or to let them know if there are any issues,” she said.
