 A peek into the office of Dr. Jeffrey Caren reveals he’s not only a cardiologist, but also a collector of pop art.
“I am uncomfortable with a pharmaceutical rep coming to my office and attempting to educate me about drugs when they are employed to market the product. The process is biased. Unfortunately, I like the pens they bring. I’ve collected more than a thousand… I call my collection ‘Some Kind of Persuasion.’ It’s really meant to trivialize the process. In my mind, the encounter is reduced to a $1 pen.”
