Get out of the office

There are very few things that truly make my blood boil, and right now I’d like to share one of them with you:

DRUG REPS GET THE HELL OUT OF MY DOCTOR’S OFFICE

I know there are benefits to having reps drop off samples and crap, but in our overmedicated world, a rep walking into the office and being sent right back to see the doctor while the waiting room is filled with sick people is just wrong.   I’ll grant that it was nice to get a free antibiotic when I was diagnosed with pneumonia- my prescription was incredibly expensive; but there was also no generic.  I generally trust my doctor, but one has to at least wonder what exactly was behind the decision in prescribing me an antibiotic for which there is no generic option when surely there are plenty on the market.

At the very least, make the chatty outgoing rep sit with the rest of us for a while.  Just pretend we’re as important to you as they are.
