    “I could not be any happier with LWD, both as a customer and a shareholder. Not only are their prices as good (or better in most cases), the customer service can’t be matched. I can pick up the phone and call someone directly at LWD, who actually cares about my success and can immediately address my issue. If I had to depend on larger distributors, I probably would not own a pharmacy today.”

    “As a community pharmacist, I looked for a distributor that would treat me the same way I treat my patients, like family. The staff at LWD constantly bend over backwards to see that our company’s medication needs are met on time and at a price that blows away the competition. I know our pharmacy will be successful with LWD behind us.”

    “If you’re looking for a wholesaler that treats you like family LWD is pharmacists’ owned and operated by loyal and dedicated employees. LWD provides fast, accurate and most importantly, less costly goods for our customers, our family. They have many value-added services at no cost to you. Our profitability, growth and remarkable success is due to the commitment of LWD Board and experienced staff.”

    “Choosing LWD as my drug wholesaler was the best business decision I made since opening my independent pharmacy. The fellow LWD pharmacists have given me much support and encouragement. The lower prices, rebates and other services they provide are a great value, but most importantly, they have become family to me and genuinely care how my business is doing.”

    “The LWD website is simple to use and well maintained. You can get item balances in real time, critical drug usage reports can be generated easily and news can be posted quickly. These are just some of the factors that make LWD a strong competitor.”
