In Reply: Dr Lyman raises an issue about which the Council on Ethical and Judicial Affairs is also concerned. In fact, the council is currently drafting guidelines that will address the practice of selling health-related goods. The council hopes to submit a report on this topic with recommendations regarding the ethical limits of such practices at the 1999 annual meeting of the American Medical Association. In the meantime, the council is encouraged to learn that individual physicians are also wary of the increasing prevalence of physicians who sell health-related goods from their offices.
