Reviewer's quote

I did an online survey with Medscape in 7/2019. Medscape was supposed to send me a $25 Amazone gift card. They didn't keep their promise. I emailed them twice. Four months later, no reply, nothing. I tried to call and all their numbers are useless. I would never waste my time doing another survey...

Every time it seems that I am getting close to a win, something happens to their website. Not Found or Access Denied. Some of their products are old and do not work well...
