The translation of the doctor's statement is:
"I don't know anything about pumping and it would be too much trouble for 
me to learn. So, lets just stick with what I already know, because it would 
be a lot easier for me."

Your response should be:
"If you don't want to take the time to learn about new therapies that make 
life better for your patients, then I'm going to find another doctor".
