I have listened to Neil deGrasse Tyson's anecdotes on doctors. I suppose there is a flaw in the system of medical school in which doctors are trained to mainly specialise in one area and focus on treating symptoms instead of the root cause. So when it comes to cancer, for example, their medical training taught them to see cancer as terminal disease and use conventional methods to treat cancer cells, such as chemotherapy, which are harmful to the body. Their diagnosis may not take into account the self-healing nature of the body, so they tend to misdiagnose a patient's chances of recovery, as Tyson pointed out, noting that the medical system hasn't really helped doctors make accurate diagnoses. Perhaps if doctors are taught to think holistically, they may stand a better chance in helping patients heal and recover faster, since the human body responds best to holistic healthcare, which includes diet, exercise and other lifestyle adjustments.
