Not A Real "Doctor"

Dr. Jarvik is not a real doctor - at least in how the Lipitor ads were trying to make him appear.

Although he has a medical degree, Dr. Jarvik is not a cardiologist and is not licensed to practice medicine.
Learning about his history earlier when he began hawking the drug instilled in me the desire to never prescribe it. But at least now Pfizer has pulled the ads and I won't have to look at him talking to "real doctors" in the hospital or running with his goofy looking kid.

Ah, Dr. Jarvik. How you will not be missed.
