>>>Of course, the large % of docs who write scripts for drugs because that
drug company gives them perks, vacations, you name it, does not help the
situation at all. No thread on the unethical practices of the drug
industry should omit the unethical practices of the medical profession.
Not to mention the incompetent practices.<<<<
And who dangles the enticements in front of the docs eyes???? (the Drug
Companies!) Don't forget the seminars in exotic locations sponsored by
the drug companies under the guise of "education" ---I do think
legislation in recent years sponsored by Kennedy has made some of the
bribery you mention illegal. The first thing I look for when going to a
new doc, is how many drug company promotional items are in the
office----if there's a lot, I run.
