Doctors Are Played Like Fiddles

By Big Drug Companies, Says Article

And Patients Pay The Price!

It's hard to get doctors to change their minds.  They like to keep doing what works or what's convenient.

Today I changed my mind.

A website for doctors, Doximity, helps doctors educate themselves, make themselves more informed.  Today I read some awful things about how doctors are manipulated by drug companies.

Here's the article: http://www.plosmedicine.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pmed....

I'm copying it and having my staff read it.

It is not ethical for me to get lunches from drug companies, so I am stopping it.  I will keep getting samples because sometimes it has saved the lives of some of my patients!  I disagree with the article that drug samples are unethical.
