Virtually every physician in the United States uses the Physicians' Desk Reference (PDR) -- the most widely used compilation of prescribing information used by physicians. Readership studies indicate that nine out of ten doctors consider the PDR their most important and most frequently consulted reference book.
The PDR is an annual directory of ethical pharmaceutical, biological, and diagnostic products intended as a service to the medical field.
Significance of the Listings:
Physicians and health care professionals rely on the PDR as a source for understanding the many pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical products available. Physicians often recommend or prescribe a certain product or pharmaceutical based on the validity and reliability of the descriptions in the PDR. Physicians depend on the fact that the manufactured product described in the PDR contains the exact amounts and types of ingredients listed and that the product delivers the precise effects described therein.
Each year, copies of the PDR are distributed to approximately a half-million practicing physicians and chief pharmacists at major hospitals in the United States. In addition, medically sophisticated consumers, institutions, and other allied health professionals--including dentists, nurses, veterinarians, hospitals, managed care organizations, and public and legal libraries--purchase the book, raising the total distribution to well over one million copies. The PDR includes prescribing information on over 3,500 products from more than 250 manufacturers.
So, if you speak to your physician or health care professional and they are unfamiliar with USANA, have them look the products up in their PDR. Having USANA's products in the Physicians' Desk Reference offers added credibility to USANA's already solid standard of quality, reliability, and integrity.
