A Small Whine About Going to the Doctor's Office

30 September 2008 at 9:02:34 PM

I'm going through my annual physical right now and have a lot of tests to take. Went to a specialist for something and I was struck by how intrusive the advertising is for pharma. I guess I saw that before the last time I was at the doctor, but literally EVERYTHING had a medication associated with it.

I went to fill in the paperwork. The clipboard I was given had Gardasil stuff on it, not just on the flat piece front and back but the clip, too! In the room, the clock was Lumwhatever that helps you sleep, the calendar was open to a lovely picture with a bunch of print about how hispanics get some illness and need X pill. As I looked around the room at things like towel dispensers, etc, it turned out that that ONLY thing that didn't have pharma associated with it was the SCALE.

Now it may be that the doctors got these things as chaztke giveaways. So that, instead of, say, having to go out and buy artwork for the office or supplies, they were given all this stuff by pharma companies. But I'll tell you how it makes ME feel. Makes me think that I am just somebody sitting there waiting to have the doctor sell something to me. Including extra procedures when you're not sick.
