It is important to realize that people greatly change the medical options promoted to them by the physicians they choose to see for any given issue(s) or set of problems. Why? Because medicine is tremendously more art than science & both public & physician choices are powerfully influenced by monetary, time, emotional, education & life experience issues + the intrusive actions of 3rd party payers.
