Doctors & Money – Now We Can Check Who Gets Paid Off!

The tipping Point of Our Health!

We now have a way to check if indeed our doctors get money for prescribing medicines to us! I just watched a hilarious video that was a parody of how and why doctors take money and how pharmaceutical pull them into their nets by money, lunches, and who knows what. Please watch the video–it is funny–titled “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver: Marketing to Doctors (HBO)” in which they give an address where you can find this new database. Here is the video if embed worked–if not please click on the link in the previous sentence–nope, the embed code takes you to the wrong video!

This new database is where doctors are listed (you will need to have full name, address, including zip code) and it takes a little time for it to search through the many doctors of similar names. Once the doctor appears, click on the doctor’s name and up will come another page listing all the companies that have pain your doctor, how much, which pharmaceutical have, if they have provided lunches, etc. It is an awesome website that can help you see which doctor you can trust and which you cannot!

Unfortunately the show gave a slightly wrong URL for the database since it assumed http and not https. So the correct link is: https://openpaymentsdata.cms.gov/ and don’t forget to wait until it searches through the names once you pressed “search.”

Enjoy!!! I hope we learn who our doctors are for real!!!

Comments are welcome as always!

About Angela A Stanton, Ph.D.

Angela A Stanton, PhD, is a Neuroeconomist focusing on chronic pain, electrolyte homeostasis, and genetics. She lives in Southern California. Her current research is focused on migraine cause, prevention and treatment without the use of medicines. As a forever migraineur from childhood, her discovery was helped by experimenting on herself. She found the cause of migraine to be at the ionic level, associated with disruption of the electrolyte homeostasis, resulting from genetic variations of all voltage gated channels that modulate electrolytes and voltage in the brain, insulin and glucose transporters, and several other related variants, such as the MTHFR variants of the B vitamin methylation process and many others. Migraineurs are glucose sensitive and should avoid eating carbs as much as possible. As a result of the success of the first edition of her book and new research and findings after treating over 4000 migraineurs world wide, all ages and both genders, she is now finishing the 2nd edition. The 2nd edition is the “holy grail” of migraines, incorporating all there is to know and also hypotheses. It includes an academic research section with suggestions for further research. The book is full of citations to authenticate the statements she makes to be followed up by those interested and to spark further research interest. It is a "Complete Guide". Due out in the summer of 2017. Dr. Stanton received her BSc at UCLA in Mathematics, MBA at UCR, MS in Management Science and Engineering at Stanford University, PhD in NeuroEconomics at Claremont Graduate University, and fMRI certification at Harvard University Medical School at the Martinos Center for Neuroimaging for experimenting with neurotransmitters on human volunteers. For relaxation Dr. Stanton paints and photographs. Follow her on Twitter at: @MigraineBook

  1. I found the name of the woman who used to be my psychiatrist on the website. Thank God I turned to Buddhist meditation and got away from doctors like her who handed out dangerous drugs like so much candy from the five and dime store. I won’t put her name because I don’t want either of us to get into trouble but here is some of the summary information. Kickback city!! About 31 pages listing payoffs!!

    • Oh my gosh!!!! That is nauseating!!! Yuk!! We MUST change the system… I am feeling defeated by all the big pharma tricks that are too criminal to me to even envision their existence!!! I am glad you walked away from her! Gosh!!! I am so glad one of my migraine group members showed me this video!! It taught me so much–and you too apparently! Wow… Stuff like this makes me think twice now about every doctor! I hope everyone will check out their doctors! grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr Thanks for letting me know and glad you could use the system to confirm your suspicion! ❤
