Reply from pharmacist

I’m a pharmacist and I don’t “sweep anything under the rug.”  My collegues don’t either.

Public Citizen

You can mention in the letter that because thousands of people in your respective state have been disabled it is costing your state money in increased disability payments and increased medical care. This [...]
