WARNING: Pharma Payments May Give You Worms!

I now have access to the database that shows exactly how many Doctors GSK paid in 2014. I’ll be writing extensively about this over the coming weeks.

In the meantime, here’s a doctor who, it appears, either has some sort of binge eating disorder or has a bad case of worms.

DR. ROGER ABRAHAMS




His specialty is Allopathic & Osteopathic Physicians/Internal Medicine, Pulmonary Disease and he is based, according to the data, at 1265 Pineview Dr, Morgantown, WV 26505-2713

Here’s what GSK gave him for his food and beverages.

**Note how particularly peckish Dr Abrahams was on May 3**

And these were just payments from GSK.

Here’s what AstraZeneca paid him. He, it appears, really pushed the boat out on May 5, spending a total of $372 on food and beverages. That’s a fortnight’s groceries to the likes of your average person.

Quite an appetite, I’m sure you’ll agree.

Payments to Roger Abrahams didn’t end there. He was also paid travel expenses and, as we shall see, for other miscellaneous activities.

TRAVEL & LODGING PAYMENTS

Before the integrity agreement was signed by GlaxoSmithKline in the recent $3 billion whisleblower lawsuit, Glaxo reps would often make payments for travel expenses. Blair Hamrick, who, along with others, blew the whistle on GSK, told me, “Back in the day, doctors were given the choice on one first class airfare, or could trade in for two coach tickets on these trips. They would always opt for two tickets and bring someone. After we filed they stopped doing that. “ Blair also informed me that, “There was speculation that a lot of doctors would paddle their expenses, in as much as they would turn in receipts without actually buying anything, to get extra money.”

On the subject of food and beverages Blair told me, “Back when we filed the case, Doctors would always bring spouses or guests. It was like a fully paid vacation. Right after the case was filed, they changed the rules to say that it was Doctors only. I don’t know whether they are sticking to the rule or not these days.”

This, in no way implies that Dr. Roger Abrahams was doing this. I just thought I’d give the reader some background into what Glaxo reps did and what the doctors, back then, chose to do.

Here’s Dr Abraham’s travel and lodging expenses.

    Why don’t you look up Blair Hamrick’s expense reports from the time I started complaining to the company until he lucked onto the case. He was padding his expenses and gobbling down every bite he could get off of the company, including gambling junkets to Louisiana with Dr.Girard Guillary..etc etc ..you are quoting a fraud… a money mongering fake who quit the case when it got tough after he sucked up his undeserved blood money and raped his partner, folding to felons, other wannabe whistleblowers, and a Paxil case against undeserving W.B.s
    Then a Federal Judge revealed what he was and is…quote that Fid. You know nothing because Hamrick is a lying bullshitter, who assumed the fetal position for 9 years while I ran the case.
    I know the truth, you are misinformed by a fraud…a psychopath and a blood sucking bottom feeder. Get the truth from someone who knows. You tell your grandkids you met him, by then you will know you were sucked in by a freak quitter, who would do nothing with Paxil or anything else for that matter.
    It is all about Hamrick, a fucking joke.
    I don’t care if this gets posted or not, if Fid wants to quote bullshit….he needs to know,send it to him.

    I wanna puke.

    I can’t get into this petty squabbling. If you can offer a quote about GSK practices back then regarding payments to doctors, then please do so. It just seems that you use the Truthman’s blog as a soundboard to vent your anger toward an individual who, like it or not, was part of the whistleblower case. He’s active and, from what I’m aware of, is doing interviews on TV and radio – why don’t you do the same?

    Like I said, I won’t be drawn in to this one-on-one squabbling – I wish to focus on the bigger picture, that has always been my goal. Do an interview with the media or the Truthman. Tell the world how corrupt the company was – To be honest, you are not helping the cause.

    I won’t be debating about your issues with Blair, to be honest I find them obsessive.
