Got a resmed bilevel machine for apnea. Called a few stores around and most of the stores said they would have to order it. When called primo they asked for a prescription. Once we have faxed the prescription they called us right away stating they have the bipap machine in stock. We went to the store and they have given us an in service on how to use the machine and maintain it. Also bought the resmed sleep apnea mask, along with some extra filters for the machine along with cleaning wipes for the mask. Thank you guys for having all the equipment and supplies in stock. Shall definitely recommend you place to family and friends.P.S I don't usually write reviews but I found this place with the help of reviews. So I am doing my job to help others to find a store in San Antonio for there medical needs.
My mom uses an oxygen tank and she lives by herself. It's getting very hard for her to go around with those huge tanks. So I have done some research and wanted to get her a portable oxygen concentrator (POC) so she would get her freedom back to go around. I went to primo medical and I asked them if they offered payment plan for the purchase and they did. We made a down payment and got the Inogen G3 machine. She likes it very much and it has given her an ease to travel with. Our family appreciates your service from the bottom of the heart. They have a lot more medical equipment than the other stores I have visited in San Antonio.
Needed to renew my medical card for the DOT and I was diagnosed with sleep apnea..ufffff. I needed a cpap machine and need to show my usage to get my CDL renewed . I called a few DME stores in san antonio and found it at Primo Medical. Bought a full face mask and steve was very helpful. The machine would generate the compliance reports which I needed on a regular basis. Nice store with a lot of cool stuff. Got some extra cpap filters along with some cleaning wipes for the mask. I will come back for my reports and my supplies. Thank you guys!
They have been out twice to our house, today they accused my husband of messing with the outlets and called him a RACIAL SLUR. They also do not seem like they know what they are doing when it comes to electrical work, they are just throwing parts at the issue instead and looking further to see what the actual issue is.
My dad was moving into Brookdale assisted living place and he needed a medical bed. We purchased a hospital bed along with a nice mattress and medical bed rails. We also liked the bedside table and we purchased one as well as it would be helpful for him to have food at his bed. We have also placed a recurring order for the bed pads and adult briefs which would make our life's easier. So every month on the 14th primo medical would deliver the supplies to the assisted living place. This place has a nicer selection of several products. I recommended this medical supply store to the assisted living place if any of their new patients or existing patients are needing a medical supply store locally.
Dad discharged from hospice. Bloody hospice guys didn't give us an advance notice of picking up the medical equipment my dad has been using. I had to get my dad a medical bed and an oxygen concentrator machine. Primo was very helpful in getting the hospital bed and the oxygen machine on time. These guys are life saviors. I would recommend this medical supply store to all the people who are in need of medical supplies in san antonio,
We were looking for a medical supply store who have medical equipment in stock and who can deliver the same day. So I asked my best friend "Google" about it and it found me what we needed. We have come across "Primo Medical Store". We got a fully electric hospital bed with an upgraded therapeutic mattress and half bed rails. We also got the wheelchair, pvc shower chair, adult briefs and reusable underpads. They have a showroom where we just stepped and got all the supplies we needed. These guys are not in the medical center but still have a lot of supplies on hand such as sleep apnea masks, orthopedic supplies, compression stocking, lift chair, oxygen concentrators and so on. We never know what we need and it's good that we have come across this medical supply place where they have everything in stock and we don't have to wait. Thank you and good job guys. Always support a local business, which I did today. GO PRIMO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Got the dream station automatic sleep apnea machine along with simpulus full face mask. Also got some cpap wipes along with additional filters. They had the cpap machine an other supplies in stock as well. Very nice medical supply store.
We were visiting San Antonio for a few days and we needed some medical supplies. We rented electric scooter, portable oxygen concentrator and bought a 3 in 1 commode as they can only be purchased. The service was very prompt and technician has taken his time to go through all the questions we had. I would rate this medical supply store very high due to the overall service and assistance provided. I wish we had the same service back home.
I havent met my deductible for a cpap machine through the insurance. My insurance said i would have to pay about $2,200 to get a sleep apnea machine along with the mask. I found primo medical who is offering the machine for a much lesser price. Looked at resmed airsense 10, respironics dream station, fisher paykel icon automatic machine. Choose to go with resmed airsense 10 apap and got the mirage quattro full face mask along with additonal cpap filters and cpap wipes. Overall a good experience at primo medical supplies. This is the best medical supply store in San Antonio.
There are different kinds of electricians. Some mostly work with contractors to install and map out electrical circuits inside homes and commercial buildings while others lay wire for large projects such as telephone lines and traffic lights. Keep this in mind when narrowing your search for a professional. If you need a tradesperson to work on your home or building, contact an inside or house wire expert. These professionals specialize in designing and putting new electrical systems in place for houses and commercial buildings.
When you contact an electrical contractor, describe the job that needs completing. Maybe you have a large project, like a remodeling plan that requires new wiring, or a small one, such as replacing a light switch or socket. Let the electrician know. Not every person you call will have the training and know-how to do more complex work.
To further hone your search, make sure you ask electricians the following questions before hiring:
1. Are You Licensed?
Trades such as HVAC, plumbing and electrical work require contractors to carefully install complicated systems that could be hazardous if they're installed incorrectly. Therefore, most states require electricians to receive training and obtain a license before working. An electrician that's licensed is one that's competent and knowledgeable enough of his or her trade to install and maintain electrical systems.
Electricians must complete thousands of hours of training in order to get a license to practice their trade, so make sure not only the company you choose but the employees doing the work show you their license. When you view the license, ensure that it's up to date and that it's issued by your state.
2. Are You Bonded?
There's potentially a lot that can go wrong if a tradesperson like an electrician installs wiring the wrong way. To spare you and your home or office from subpar work, make sure the electrician is bonded. Being bonded means the professional has an intermediary that can pay for any damage caused to a property or foot the bill if the contractor fails to finish the job.
3. Are You Insured?
Besides a bond, you also need an electrician that's insured. Many states require contractors to carry some form of insurance along with their license. Insist that whomever you hire has the proper amount of insurance for the work you need done and call the insurer to check the policy.
See that who you hire for the job has liability and workers' compensation insurance so you don't end up paying for injuries or accidents caused by the company's work. Workers' compensation insurance means the business can provide for any of its employees if they're hurt on the job.
4. Is Your Business Licensed?
Not only should you check that the electrician is licensed by your state, you should also ask if his or her company has the certification to operate in your area. Both the electrician as well as the business he or she works for need licenses either issued by the state or local municipality.
5. Who Will Do the Work?
Ensure the person who actually comes out to complete the work is licensed, bonded and insured. You need to know not just the company that's doing the work but the person they're sending out to your home or building. Make sure the employee doing the job isn't an unsupervised apprentice. If it happens that the business uses a subcontractor, check with both the company and the tradesperson that the same kind of bond and insurance applies for that subcontractor as it would for an employee.
6. How Much Do You Charge by the Hour?
If you have a small and simple job that needs completing, such as a new light switch, then ask the electrician how much they charge for it before hiring him or her. When it comes to larger, more intensive and time-consuming work, you'll want to inquire about the contractor's hourly rate. Many tradespeople will offer to come out to your home or building, examine it and give you an estimate as well as tell you how much they charge per hour. It's best to get this in writing before proceeding.
While you're at it, call several electricians to come out to your home to give you an estimate on the work. This way you can get an idea of what the average price of the job will be.
7. Do You Offer a Warranty?
Many reputable tradespeople provide warranties for their work. Inquire if both the labor and parts the electrician uses are under warranty and how long the work is guaranteed for.
8. Do You Have or Need a Permit?
Depending on what kind of repairs or installation you need, your city could require a permit for the electrical work. Ask your electrician if the job calls for one and have him or her put the permit under his or her name. Ensuring the tradesperson obtains a permit will safeguard you from any blame if the labor turns out to be subpar.
Finding a trustworthy electrician isn't hard, but you must do your due diligence. Make sure whomever you hire is licensed, bonded and insured, and that the professional can show you proof of all three as well as get the necessary permit for the job. Besides these important factors, you can take further steps to guarantee you obtain a reputable tradesperson.
1. Get Referrals
Ask your family, friends or neighbors if they can recommend a professional to you and inquire if they're pleased with the work. Better yet, ask them if they can show you the project the electrician completed and ask them how long it took the worker to complete it.
2. Look Online
It can't hurt to also check electricians out online. Look for reviews, ratings and, most importantly, see if they have any complaints on file with your municipality or with your local business bureaus. If former customers filed grievances against them, you may want to steer clear.
3. Ask for a Quote
Reputable electricians will give you a quote for small work over the phone if you ask and will travel to your home to quote you a price for larger jobs. Be wary of one that declines to give you an estimate or insists that he or she charge you for coming out to your house.
4. Ask Them About Their Experience
Being bonded, licensed and insured is all well and good, but you also need an experienced professional to do the work. With that said, interview electricians about past projects they completed and how many years they've been in business or how much training they have.
5. Be Wary of Suspiciously Low Estimates
Watch out for contractors that greatly underbid other electricians. If the price seems too good to be true, it probably is. Also, always remember to get the estimate in writing before settling on a company.
While all electricians need a license, not all of them do the same types of jobs. They are usually split up into three groups: outside, inside and residential.
Outside: These types of electricians work outdoors on electrical lines that connect to power plants.
Inside: Inside experts typically focus on commercial and industrial buildings that require a lot of power.
Residential: If you're a homeowner, you'll most likely need to hire an electrician that specializes in residential wiring. Residential electricians work with low-voltage systems and wiring to install fuse boxes and light fixtures.
Like many trade groups, electricians learn their craft by going to vocational schools and shadowing professionals on the job. In order to become a full-fledged professional, a person must undergo an apprenticeship with master and journeyman electricians. An apprentice needs 8,000 hours of practical work before graduating to the journeyman level.
If an apprentice reaches journeyman status, he or she can complete most electrical work but cannot design it until completing more testing along with 2,000 more on-the-job hours.
Many do-it-yourself enthusiasts might be inclined to fix electrical problems around their home, but they risk shock and bodily injury. It's always best to call a licensed electrician, even if you have something as small as an improperly working wall outlet.
