Are Consumers Screwed by Boston Medical Group Marketing?

Marketing an unpleasant (but effective) therapy and facing stiff competition from Viagra and other pills, Boston Medical Group is allegedly using unethical tactics to draw patients.  Alex Zarembo in the Seattle Times:

But Boston Medical discourages the use of oral medications, according to court records, company literature and interviews with former patients. The company plays up dangers of the pills and provides a “test” shot in the office. While the patient is still aroused, he is told that several months of regular use may be all he needs to regain natural function or prevent premature ejaculation.”
