Is your doctor on this list?
by Larry Geller
Ian Lind has done a great service by posting info on a ProPublica investigation of payments to doctors by drug companies. Read it here.
Of course, I checked the list he linked to right away, to see if any of my doctors are on it. I found none, but I did find some I know.
There’s no implication of wrongdoing, and there’s a place with suggestions on what to do if you do find that one of your doctors has taken payments from a drug company (How Patients Can Use This Data) on the ProPublica website. Of course, if you are taking a drug made by a company that was paying your doctor, you’d probably have concerns.
Thanks again to Ian for posting this important info.
