When a doctor makes an error in his or her diagnosis a patient can be left with devastating medical injuries.
This is often due to the fact that proper medical tests are not performed which could help with the patient’s treatment.
To be able to reach the proper diagnosis a doctor is expected to use all of the scientific tests and advancements available.
Issues arise when doctors fail to perform a test or examination and other evidence shows that other practitioners would have ordered said test for a patient in the same condition.
Add to this if a doctor fails take an adequate history of a patient there should be no shock if the doctor’s diagnosis is not correct.
A competent and reasonable doctor would be sure to get a proper history of his or her patient to help get to the correct diagnosis.
When a doctor fails to take the time to get a proper history of the patient a strong argument can be made that the doctor is needlessly endangering his or her patient.
