Right now, most medical treatments are designed for the average patient.
But one size doesn't fit all, and treatments that are very successful for some patients don't work for others. Think about it:
- If you need glasses, you aren't assigned a generic pair. You get a prescription customized for you.
- If you have an allergy, you get tested to determine exactly what you're allergic to.
- If you need a blood transfusion, it has to match your precise blood type.
