"Find a doctor who has thrown the sales reps out of his office, who has said, 'I'm going to do what is right for my patients'," Melody Petersen, author of a new book called Our Daily Meds: How The Pharmaceutical Companies Transformed Themselves Into Slick Marketing Machines And Hooked The Nation On Prescription Drugs told Bill Moyers.
"There is a growing number of doctors who feel that way," Petersen continued.
