Default How much money has your doctor taken?

You can find out.

Open Payments Data

Studies show that just one meal paid for by a pharmaceutical company can influence prescription practices.

OMG!!!
I just put in one doctor's name and he's received over $65,000 when it says the national average is 3,200. WOW!

ps I can see how much each office lunch cost and what days each pharma brought food to the office!! How much he got on trips and lodging....

Where did you ever did you find this Wearbear, it's amazing?

I didn't think that was even legal anymore. Maybe just where I live. Anyway...I put my husband's name in just for the heck of it and got $297.03. Don't know how they come up with the numbers. They don't even give out pens anymore.

It's been years since we had any dinners or trips on the pharma reps.

I'm sorry you're sick in bed, rest is the best medicine.

I looked up another doc that I thought surely, he would have a high number of payments received but surprisingly his take was very little, below $100.

But that first doc...wow, no wonder he gave my DD a free bag of pills, then after she looked them up she wisely decided not to take..
They're like pill pushers...drug dealers!
