Diabetic Test Strips & Durable Medical Equipment in LaPlace, Louisiana

In LaPlace and throughout Louisiana, people rely on medical supplies covered by Medicare, such as diabetic test strips, blood sugar monitors and nebulizer equipment. Unfortunately, Part B supplies distributed by mail do not always arrive on time. In some areas, patients may be forced to drive more than 50 miles to obtain wheelchairs and other equipment for which mail order is not a viable option.

With Gem Drugs, you never have to hope your diabetic test strips arrive on time. We provide patients in LaPlace and nearby communities with durable medical equipment when they need them most — from walkers and wheelchairs to orthotics and nebulizer equipment. Just stop by either convenient Louisiana location, where you’ll find DME supplies for a variety of alternate-site health care and home care environments:
