Encouraging to see a doctor rethink old avenues. This was due to his own personal experience. I was surprised by his emotional apology to the obese woman he treated in the ER in the past. With more doctors like this man,I believe we have hope.

Wonderful video. Good reminder about remaining open and empathetic in order to further our understanding of a very complicated disease.
