To hear that he believes it's too much trouble to run the lung test for every single patient that wants to try Afrezza.
he doesn't have time to do all that.

the responses to this thread are absolute comical.
you longs just don't get it. Why do you keep defending this stock? Just keep blabbering about how great it is and then ultimately I want you to look at your brokerage account and see what is has done.
If you're green. Great, you must have gotten in before ADCOM.
If it looks red, then just shutup loser.
that just shows the reason why you are a pt and not a doctor because simply you are not bright enough. First, the PFT isn't done by doctors, it's schedule to some pulmonary lab in which a technician or nurse does it. The doctor has to order it of course, which takes 20 secs out of his precious life, and it is done what once every year or so. Second is that patients make the decision sometimes; when they see needle free and the ease of Afreeza they will ask their docs for it.
base line test done in pulmonary lab.Then follow up done in drs office called FEV1is simple & paid by insurance co. good for follow up & revenue for dr serviceuneless new pulmonry symptoms or sign like SOB,
We actually get paid $30-$40 for doing PFT's. And doctors don't do it, our Med. Asst's, CNA's and LPN's do. We look at the FEV1 and that's it. Nice extra little revenue for the doc.
