Evolution of the Pharma Sales Rep As reported not too long ago in the Wall Street Journal, "many physicians no longer have the time to take the calls and some doctors refuse to see pharmaceutical representatives out of concern about improper promotions." Access to prescribers by sales reps has declined steadily since 2008.
