I was reading the St. Petersburg Times, a Florida Newspaper this morning – and they featured the only local doctor that was a member of http://nofreelunch.org/. The group is dedicated to the practice of medicine without influence of pharm reps. You know, let your doctor prescribe the right medication, and hope he/she is not influenced by the free exam table they received from the Merck Product’s rep.
I was curious – which doctors in Roanoke are members? THE ANSWER. None. Now, hopefully the word is not out yet and so local physicians don’t know about this grass roots effort. Hopefully, this new year will bring many transformations in health care.
Check out the site – it is interesting~
