About a month later he literally snuck into the ER in the night and begged to be re-admitted. So I had him buy a large pizza for each and every staff member, janitor, clerk working that evening. He did. We had stacks of pizza from floor to ceiling. So I relented and made the necessary phone calls.


Well, thank goodness you're retired. I desperately want my medical choices being made by someone who's swayed by pizza.

I believe that PhRMA has now pretty much gone swag-free, including those pizza lunches, that you're discussing, and J&J (who makes Levaquin) was one of the first to adopt and enforce those standards.

Still, you remind me of the doctors who cheerfully informed me (during some of my pharma ride-alongs) that they "write who they see... and who's skirt is shortest."

Yeah, I'm thrilled by that code of ethics.

How about an in-service for the purpose of learning more about the drug?
