    Eye-opener

    As a physician assistant, I knew or suspected for years what was going on, but I didn't know for how long it had been going on, and to what extent. It's interesting to explore why the situation exploded as technology changed and as the medical playing field changed. Very disillusioning and disheartening, but no worse, in my opinion, than all the other scandals that become public every day, only a little closer to home. The whole medical field today is just a business; we might as well swap our white lab coats for suit jackets. This is just one more reason I don't practice clinically anymore. Very sad. A must-read for anyone in the medical field, and I daresay that many of my friends and colleagues will see their reflections here.

    highly recommended-must read if you're interested in current pharma and physician ethics

    Carl Elliott does an outstanding job of laying out the ethical issues that medicine has been facing for the last twenty years. With the empathy of a physician and the research of a scientist, he presents the issues and the challenges in a thought provoking manner. I understood the challenges of the pharmaceutical companies, their motivations, and the concerns and challenges of the physicians and scientists. He also provided insight into drug testing and research results that was both interesting and valuable in our family making future medical decisions for those around us. A must read if you want to understand what's happening in medicine, pharmaceuticals and research.
