  • Disruptive Women in Health Care » Blog Archive » Cancer Schmancer – Quote: "Doctors are bludgeoned by big business health insurance companies to go the least expensive route of diagnostic testing. They are trained to think, “If you hear hooves galloping, don’t look for zebra because it’s probably a horse.” But if you happen to be a zebra, you’re in big trouble!" This is how doctors are taught to think, and if they don't have the tools / ability to listen to patients (time, technology, training), the likelihood that things appear to be horses increases.
