High drug prices can be shocking. Pharmacists admit that this is because of the monopolization of many drugs on the market. This is one of the factors contributing to the rising prices on medicines. Pharmaceutical companies act exclusively as profit-oriented business entities. That is why some medicines are several times more expensive in the United States than in neighboring countries, 3-5 times. Therefore, it is now much more profitable to shop online. The required medicine will be delivered to you the next day.

Pharmaprix is a very old school place. I forgot exactly how long this pharmacy had been owned, but it is a very nice place with very informative people and very nice people. If it was closer to me, I would fill my prescriptions here. Lines are not usually very long, but all in all, it’s a pretty productive place.
Just returned from attempting to pick up my mom’s eye drops for glaucoma. Mom is 82. She is retired from civil service, and my recently deceased dad was a 23 year Air Force veteran. We weren’t happy about leaving Walgreens, where we receive excellent and professionally mature service. While here at Circle a grossly inappropriate young woman passive/aggressively walked off, accusing me of rudeness. When we called to file a complaint, we were told they receive many complaints about the unprofessional behavior across the nation. Disgusting. Poor customer service. Zero accountability, particularly with the elderly.

PJC Jean Coutu pharmacy is under new ownership and offers nothing but excuses for malfunctioning phone systems, failure to respond to voicemails, and apparent inability to contact the doctor’s office for refill authorization. I will be changing pharmacists at the earliest possible convenience.
I tried to get my medicines transferred there and asked if I could pick them up once a week and asked if I could pay for all four at the beginning of the month and she said I would have to pay every week and said it’s either the way she says or not at all… If you want to be talked down to and get horrible customer service, this is the place for you.

Best pharmacy in town. Great staff! Always knowledgeable with great customer service. I know I will always get fast service without having to sacrifice the quality of the service.
A big thank you to the two ladies working in ViaQX pharmacy today! They provided me with outstanding customer service & helped me save over $600 on an epinephrine injector! I will definitely be back in the future!
Familiprix Clinique (User Rating: 4.5)
38 Côte du Palais, Québec, QC G1R 4H8, Canada
For being an old town pharmacy with such history, you get that nostalgic feeling of years gone by when stepping in. That disappears the moment you speak with an associate. They are rude and impatient.
Familiprix Clinique is absolutely the best pharmacy I have ever used. My prescriptions are always ready very quickly & the line is always short & moves quickly. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They even gave me a free bottle of insulin when my daughter ran out, and my daughter could have died without their generosity! I will always be a customer here 🙂
