    Any Experience with Eligard Injections in the Sosúa-Puerto Plata Area?

    Just found your post, Frank. Has anyone responded? I, too, will be needing 'the shot' while I'm in the DR. Let's keep each other in sync. I'll be back in the DR mid January, for 6 months. Good luck to us both!!! Bob

Therefore the only solution is to cease collecting the fee from everybody until such time as we are able to develop the necessary software to implement this request. (Like 18 months, or longer!)...

    Sky, I also have used PIA for many years with no problems until last week. No problems in last few days. Problem perhaps with Claro. If Claro is super slow, can PIA compensate? Probably not.
