I think DLC hit it right on the nose. Your question reminds me of residency when we got free lunchs during rounds. They didnt influence me than and they dont now either. I saw nothing wrong with them mind you but I wouldnt (nor would my collegues) have prescribed something solely because we got lunch. I think ethics are very personal and so you must look to yourself for guidance. However as was said if you use your best clinical judgement you will always find the answer.

It is often said buy what you know. This being true drug companies or health care ones might be appropriate for physicians to invest in. First of course you must ask yourself if they are the best place for your money. What type of investor you are, what time frame and what risk reward ratio you are willing to deal with. If you were younger and more aggresive than techs or early start ups might be more appropriate. If you wanted stable solid growth than perhaps an established company is more to your liking.

Hope this helps
