If a picture is worth a thousand words, what’s an FDA warning letter about Drionic worth?
This posted warning from the FDA accuses Drionic of failing to meet basic manufacturing standards, customer service expectations, and clinical proof to legally sell in the US. However, this hasn’t stopped the company from servicing US patients. How do we know that? We called. And we ordered one! In fact, we were told by the owner of the company that “prescriptions are optional.” (not only a lie, but illegal!)
At RA Fischer Co., we’ve been meeting and exceeding the FDA’s high expectations for over 30 years. Official representatives tour our Southern California-based facility to inspect our processes and procedures. While the paperwork can be expensive, we’re proud to say that we’ve built our business the right way: we’re 100% made in America, FDA-Approved, and the original name in iontophoresis.
There’s a pretty big reason why there’s a pretty big price difference between our iontophoresis devices and those offered by Drionic. The Drionic model is battery powered. Worse yet, the batteries are proprietary, meaning you have to continue to purchase them from Drionic on a recurring basis just to be able to use their machine. AND batteries only last an average of 2 sessions. 2 sessions! Think of how many times you’ll have to re-order in just one month.
The Drionic iontophoresis device is listed for $249 on their website. Back to that ‘picture’s worth a thousand words’ thing: take one look at their product. Does something stand out? It looks like a toy, doesn’t it?
Here’s a fun fact about Drionic’s return policy. We found this disclaimer on their website: All first-time Drionic Users receive a 90 Day Satisfaction Guarantee on orders that are accompanied by a physician’s prescription. What’s wrong with that? When we called, we were told that prescriptions were optional! A clever workaround to their policy.
RA Fischer Co. offers a longer, 2-Year Warranty as well as a hassle-free support system for returns. If a part needs to be repaired, do you really want to ship your device internationally? With us, you’re shipping to our headquarters in Simi Valley, CA.
