Lipiflow and my Opthamologist's comments

I am so thoroughly frustrated with the doctors in my area.. western MA. I called 5 different offices to ask if they intended to use the Lipiflow system. Most had never heard of it.. Aren't dr's supposed to keep up with medical journals? My doctor's response was quote "It's just a fancy hot compress and doing the compresses yourself will accomplish the same thing." I am so angry right now. I sometimes wish that he could experience what my eye feels like for 24 hours. I also asked him about serum drops a while back because regular tears don't really help me and actually over time make it worse. His response.. My eyes aren't that dry and serum tears can cause infections. Sometimes I just want to give up... Anyway.. I'm angry enough right now to pursue this because of his comment. Does anyone know where I can get a copy of the clinical trials? I want to mail it to him with a couple of comments about his comment to me. I googled it but couldn't find anything.
