Interactive Research Tool: Has your doctor received drug company money?

Pharmaceutical and medical device companies are now required by law to release details of their payments to a variety of doctors and U.S. teaching hospitals for promotional talks, research and consulting, among other categories. Use this tool to search for general payments (excluding research and ownership interests) made from August 2013 to December 2014.

    The practice of good, ol’ capitalism. To think people look down their noses at conspiracy theorists…..until the education process making doctors is carefully evaluated, i.e. allopathic pill giving, nothing will change. Doctors are told that miracles come in the form of little white pills, hence, that’s all they know. A pill for everything, the American way. Is medicine corrupt? Hint. It’s a 3 letter word starting with Y and ending with S.

    Well it is about time. Free samples is one thing for patients, actually paying a doctor is unethical.
