Do doctors get commission from pharmaceutical companies and pathological labs? please tell is it true or only rumor?
Obviously, not just commission these companies also offer foreign tours, cars, and fancy stuff to doctors.
Yes they mostly are dacoits.
My relative is a doctor and he told me that pharmaceutical companies always offer him discounts and labs offer him commission. And he instead gives that discount away on to the patient so they wont have to bear heavy costs.
Yes, big time like tours and cars.
Not only commission, they get expensive trips, expensive remodeling of their clinics etc.
My good friend works for the pharma, not only commission (^^^as mentioned) but AC, fridge, paint, seats for the clinic and house. Everything is included.
I personally know 20+ doctors, who all are working in hospitals and did not associate with any pharma, it mostly happened in clinics not in hospitals.
Not all doctors, the doctors who want to avail the benefits then they go for small start-up pharma companies which offer them incentives in return of prescribing their given medicines to the patients.
Holiday trips, Cash Commission, sometimes new model car (depends on the doctors worth and business he gives), Air conditioners and other appliances. These type of GIFTS (so called).
Just think how would they know the brand names of the medicines where as chemical is the main thing and is manufactured by more than 1 factory.
Heavy commissions, pharma companies are big mafia who are compromising health of Pakistani people.
Doctors are sales persons nothing else they have a certificate to sell drugs
Commission is an insulting word to what doctors receive from Pharma company. They have share of the total sale in the vicinity.
They also get:
- Mobile phones
- Home appliances
- Umrah and Hajj packages
- Holidays in any country of their choice
- Some even can get bungalows and cash too
