Receiving competent medical care is pivotal for both your short-term health and future wellbeing. Unfortunately, some physicians are not attentive enough to provide patients with the care they deserve. A misdiagnosis, wherein a physician wrongly determines that a patient has a certain medical condition, can become a highly dangerous circumstance. With misdiagnosis may come treatment for an imaginary problem, including medication or surgery that could cause significant bodily harm. In addition, a misdiagnosis means that the true medical concern is not being remedied as needed. A delayed diagnosis can also forever impact a patient’s life. For circumstances in which seconds, minutes, or days count, delayed diagnosis could be disastrous. Conditions as disparate as stroke and cancer demand precise and timely diagnoses.
