It's amazing what seeing those positive (or should I say negative!) results with their own eyes can do. No matter what they've read about it in the medical journals. As soon as that happens, if they have a skerrick of humanity about them, they will embrace generics with open arms. Likewise, any hospital that remains resistant after seeing the results you can assume is staffed by people with cold, dead souls.
One of the most refreshing things I have found about hep c treatment is the genuine excitement of the health care workers when they see for themselves how good these drugs are. I get the impression that almost as much for us, it is for them a breath of fresh air, a genuine medical breakthrough, that shines light into a job that comes with a fair share of discouragement and hopelessness.
