I'm in the process of changing doctors right now and had my first appointment with the my new dr yesterday. I was asking several questions about kalydeco and genetics and basically got the response that "I'm not a molecular biologist, I concern myself with clinical data that is needed to treat patients and leave the drug development to those who are" Hes an older doctor, probably pushing retirement age but is fairly new to treating cf. I left the appointment with the feeling that because it wasn't taught to him in med school some 30+ years ago he doesn't have a good understanding of it. He has the attitude of "i've been practicing medicine longer than you've been alive" and "this is the way we've always done it". My question is would you prefer a doctor that has the decades of experience in medicine that has seen everything or because cf care is advancing at the rate it is would you prefer your doctor be only a few years out of med school and be "up to date"My previous doctor was a happy middle ground between the two, he has been practicing for about 20 years but is constantly researching and I never found a question that he wasn't well versed in.I asked this new doctor what his take on kalydeco was and he responded with a brief "I've seen treatments for various conditions come and go, ones that seemed to be very helpful but later found to have side effects beyond the benefits, but someone has to be the first in line, so if you want, we will start working on persribing it for you"
