Doctors' looks: Significant factor in your care?

A new John Hopkins School of Public Health survey of 500 primary care physicians found that those who were overweight were less likely to make a diagnosis of obesity, or discuss weight with their patients, than other physicians who were at a normal weight.

Medical contributor Dr. Holly Phillips and supermodel and body image coach Emme talked about it with "CBS This Morning: Saturday" co-hosts Jeff Glor and Nancy Cordes.
