I like the phone call reminders. The phone reps are excellent. The pricing is also great saving me $450 per every 3 months versus local pricing. Shipping time from Turkey is very reasonable. So, brand name meds at 1/3 the cost, delivered by mail, really doesn't get any better. I do recommend Canada Meds to all my friends.

Excellent customer service. Excellent prices. I wouldn't be able to afford some of my prescriptions if I didn't receive them from Canada Meds United, even using insurance. They stay on top of my refills and call me well in advance to remind me to refill. Better customer service than I receive from my local pharmacy.

I was so delightfully surprised when your representative called me to see if I wanted to refill my prescription. It was on my "to do" list, and you and your staff member made it so very easy. Thank you for providing this alternative to the bizarre pharmaceutical/political situation in the U.S. Be assured that I do not take Canada Meds for granted. I am going to make it a point to tell more people about you, including my doctors for referrals to their patients.
