We Sell Drugs To Doctors - Pharmaceutical Reps Doing Their Jobs
« on: November 08, 2015, 10:08:55 PM »

In this latest video from the team at xtranormal we get a critical look at the role drug reps play in convincing doctors to prescribe certain newer drugs that are unknown and might have more side effects and/or risks over older tested and safer drugs.  Of course it's not so black and white but there's no doubt that the perks such as free lunch junkets and gifts plus the fact that these reps are usually young, attractive and well rehearsed all play a role.  Let us know your thoughts on the video.  Do you think it plays fair?  Do you think the critical tone is appropriate or exaggerated?  Do drug reps bring anything positive to the medical profession?  Are they even necessary?  Let us hear your thoughts.
