They can receive "rewards" for being the highest prescriber of a drug. It depends on the company, the drug etc... They range from trips to a new "effexor" pen.

However, I would like to point out that the vast majority of physicians that I know are very very ethical, moral people.

In fact, most of them hate the "drug reps" that continually visit their offices, hospitals etc...

At the hospital that I am affiliated with there are entire wards where drug reps are simply banned.

If you have concerns about a particular doc, ask them. Be sure you don't sound accusatory in any way though, as most docs are very sensitive about this and are again, very ethical very moral people.
