    Yep. A good friend of mine is a drug rep. He use to be in NYC before coming back home. He told me, a lot of the doctors wouldn't speak to him if he called them doctor. They wanted to be addressed by their first name. Some would kick him out of the office and he'd have to come back another time.

    My experience is anyone who insists on being called Mr. or Ms. or Dr. outside of their office/clinic/hospital is pretentious. The ego being stroked is theirs, they need it to make themselves feel better.

    Probably depends on which day you ask. Although he mainly does respiratory drugs for COPD and emphysema. So not sure how much demand there is for that.

    He's your guy then. That said, it sounds like it is getting scary in the pharmaceutical world. Lots of layoffs and other cost saving measures. But not really sure that is making its way to patients.

    Before I switch dealers, could you ask him how much an ounce is going for? :):jiggy:

    I don't have any issues with it. I'm turning 40 in November and with Seniors I always address them by Mr or Mrs.
