Sponsoring move -- is not a sick persons as you have stated doctor.
-- you know I'm not a sick person but you help me out as well come but there's no she's were very close friends.
But you know.
I want to emphasize that this book that I wrote.
The fact that some of these people -- some celebrities.
That the real fact of the book is that I'm trying to give a message not that I would -- Lenny Kaye.
That -- -- with technology that people are focused on the new machines -- new diagnostic equipment.
The main thing that I'm trying to demonstrate in this book is the importance.
Of the doctor patient relationship.
You get any machine you get any procedure.
With your doctor.
The fact that he -- she cares for you and you know it.
It's tremendously and.
-- but let me read an example and this is a personal one I don't usually bring personal examples like that but.
But my wife had a stroke over in England we were thousands of miles away from you we weren't getting any help in England partly because of the system.
Partly because we didn't know anybody there.
One phone call to you for all of the tests that they gave us over there we were hours and hours getting MRI's San mares and everything.
You made a very simple suggestion which turned out to be the absolute right.
Diagnosis of what her problem was when my America -- because you knew her you knew about her health conditions -- -- That's right I mean my recollection as David that when you called me to say that you had these symptoms she was still in the gym.
And I said do you mind diagnosis is such and such and that -- later substantiated.
But yes in the magic shows you that if you are dealing if you weren't sick or worried that your -- -- recovery.
Is as dependent.
Upon your relationship with your doctor as it is on any test or procedure that can be done.
The brain plays an important part in the interpretation of symptoms and then have symptoms involved and that's a message of the of this book the fact that some of the patients were celebrities it's a coincidence.
It is of course and it's of course people care about that's one reason frankly is -- you have to realize why a lot of people are gonna buy the book up as they wanna hear.
-- -- I got to ask about one because he was a dear friend of yours Walter Matthau.
Does he one of those people who actually because of your relationship.
Live longer than he might otherwise.
No I don't think so he was an exception he was an extraordinarily close friend.
He lived in Los Angeles I wasn't his doctor but I visited him when he was sick at the end and our relationship.
Was a professional and as you can see I was in one of his movies which was later ended it ended up -- the cutting room floor but one of his movies.
But I did not do you mean I examined him from time to time but I do not consider myself.
