Edward Craig: “To throw this away in some misguided attempt to avoid the appearance of unseemly influence of industry on physician’s decision making is a simplistic, holier-than-thou response to what is essentially in 2008 becoming a non-issue, as medical organizations, individual physicians, and industry alike respond to increasing scrutiny by the federal government by changing substantively how they relate to one another.”

    If a physician makes a bad choice on the basis of a $0.10 pen or even a $10 pizza, the problem isn’t with the pharmaceutical company….it’s with the corrupt physician.
