He is right about physicians being a key driver. In my experience there are a very few that are interested in advancing technology and a majority that do not trust it. This also drives the approval process, which is incredibly conservative. I have seen articles on individual patients who were much more aggressive about hacking their own bodies than what is seen in the mainstream medical industry. Larry M.
