I love your service! I recommend it to anyone I hear, like me, is taking "Cadillac" medications. Your "price match" guarantee has saved me oodles, as has the shipping I bought that makes it "free". I could not afford my medications if I had to pay otherwise, even with my insurance for medications, your service is vastly less expensive.

This is a five star review as long as I am able to charge my meds on a credit card as it is not convenient for me to be mailing checks to Canada.

I have been receiving my medication from Canada Med Stop for years now. I guess due to Covid, I had experienced a much longer wait time a couple of times this year; however, this last time was very quick. I also would like to say that the employees with whom I speak have always been very helpful and very pleasant. Thanks again to all who have helped me.
