    Wow!! Just wow!! I can’t not say enough how absolutely alone it feels to be overweight and have diabetes. The message that I somehow deserve this chronic illness because I haven’t taken care of myself is really hard.. What a wonderful humble man. I will be doing some additional research.

  2. Wow, this is pretty incredible. I did not expect his reaction at the end.

  3. People come to health care professionals to healed of their illnesses, not to be judged or thought of as having no “willpower”.
    This was a wonderful example of how the medical community should always be researching, hypothesising, questioning, and evolving. Kudos to this Dr. to realize that. Also, equally important, is the fact that he came to the reality that part of his job is also empathy and compassion. Very powerful!
