A doc goes cold turkey from drug reps
“We doctors see these folks, let them stroke our egos and accept their largesse. Some of us do this reluctantly, with unspoken reservations; a few do it eagerly and even try to shake down the reps for more and bigger freebies.
Many of us just play the game without thinking. Drug reps have been part of the medical scene since the early years of the 20th century, and most of us have never considered what medicine would be like without them.”
