That's a fundamentally stupid position to take. Of course I can make those claims with confidence, based on what I've seen with my own eyes and what I know from colleagues in my profession.

Your anecdotal evidence holds little sway.
You might choose to disbelieve me, but that is irrelevant to whether I can have confidence in my own knowledge.

Why would her anecdotal testimony be more meaningful?
Do you never give any degree of credence to any claim of fact by anyone that is not supported by clinical research?
