True, eye-opening, sad truth about the reality of big pharma.
13 February 2020 | by chrisdoran-60098See all my reviews

This is 10/10. Maybe you dont like the dad, or the length of the 4 episodes, or you think the show is sensationalizing the opioid crisis. Sadly, this is true. As a doctor, I have more insight and knowledge into this topic than most. How the rep talks is accurate, I've had it done to me. I've had addicted patients, I've had to report pill seeking behavior, this is real life people. Kudos to Neflix for sharing this story about reckless, immoral doctors and the big pharma industry.
