How to reach a diagnosis
Have you ever wondered how physicians narrow down a diagnosis and eventually reach a conclusion?
This seems like a simple process. It’s not. This can be what makes or breaks a patient’s care. When done correct, you can save and improve lives. When it’s done wrong, you can ruin their life.
As a patient, it’s important to understand this process for a few reasons. First, it gives you better insight into how the entire process works. Patients can often be frustrated by the number of tests being ordered, having to travel to different offices to have different tests, and so on. Understandable.
