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.

Amazing video! I wish all doctors adopted this attitude when dealing with those of us who are heavy and have developed type 2. This is the reason I do not go to doctors any more....I can not handle the judgement. I have lost 50 lbs and still have extremely high sugar levels so weight is not the only issue.

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