How to find out if your doctor has taken payments from device companies

This link can provide some information on if your doctor receives monies from medical device manufacturers. I have looked up one surgeon on an MPN who took millions from a medical device manufacturer.

Spinal cord stimulators, hip, knee and spine implants are some of the devices that are implanted. The medical device industry is in fact larger than the pharmaceutical industry. A new documentary on Netflix called "The Bleeding Edge" is very informative on what is going on in the US.
I am not an attorney.Anything I write should not be considered legal advice.I am writing from my own personal experiences,which is not from any sort of legal background. You should consult with an attorney over legal issues. In California, if you cannot get an attorney you can consult with an I&A officer.
About half of U.S. doctors received payments from the pharmaceutical and medical device industries in 2015, amounting to $2.4 billion, a new study reports. Those payments and gifts very likely encourage doctors to prescribe pricey brand-name drugs and devices pushed by sales representatives, a second study argues.
