Advertising in the medical profession

Postby patience_and_healing » 03 Apr 2018, 01:30

This paper explains just why it feels so distasteful to read all those doctors' advertisements. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2563279/

I found it quite enlightening. But I'm contradicting my beliefs by going to see a doctor for my skin condition who advertises on Google. I haven't had much luck with doctors in the Bay area, so I'll soon be off to Southern California to see what treatment options he will suggest.

Too funny, but I get it.

I was telling my brother about the link you posted and sent it to him to read earlier today.

I hope that you receive a good suggestion or two.
