In the doctors office.

During the two hours I had to sit and ponder int he dr's waiting room this afternoon I noticed he had an add for viagra on the wall. The add was contained in a case owend by a local advertiser and not the doctor himself.

The thing that I started to ponder was the legitimacy of such an add and it's reflection on the doctors who work in this clinic.

If an organization of any sort is paying a medical profesional to advertise their medical product with the confies of their office, does this damage the credibilty of the doctor, or his percieved impartiality towards the use of the best treatment methods avaliable. In other words, does any one see the conflict of interest here?

I gotta stop thinking so much....
