    Dermatologist incentives?

    Hey!

    I was searching through some of the old threads on acne treatment. I have always trusted my dermatologist, but just a thought:

    Do dermatologists get money from drug companies to push certain perscriptions? For instance, my doc perscribed Differin for me a while back. There were little pamphlets and fliers about Differin and "how it will work for you" all over the office. See where I'm going?

    Thanks guys...

    Why am I getting that sinking feeling that this was a stupid question?

    Drug companies give all doctors benefits to prescribe or advise certain drugs. My father's a doctor and the drug companies supply golfing retreats, box seat hockey tickets, skiing vacations, caribbean cruises etc....

    It's sad, but EVERYONE gets kickbacks these days.
