    Excellent interview. I particularly like his comment that "...this is really at the root of much of the well-documented judgment physicians often have toward their obese and diabetic patients. The treatment fails. We assume itís because they wonít comply. We donít consider the possibility that the treatment might be incorrect, and we abandon them."

The treatment fails. Not the patient.

  Good point as my Mom raised us to treat others as we would ike to be treated. It becomes a learning opporunity for some and goes both ways. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
