Failure to Diagnose

When you go to a doctor seeking medical attention, it is reasonable for you to expect that your doctor will be able to properly diagnose any existing condition or illness and recommend treatment to help you remedy the problem. Being diagnosed with a serious medical condition such as cancer, heart problems or a life-threatening infection can dramatically effect a person's life, family and future. The one advantage of being properly diagnosed with this type of medical condition is that you will be given the opportunity to undergo treatment so as to remedy the situation and get on with living your life. Any failure to diagnose an existing medical condition or illness could cause further complications and may leave you unable to take advantage of treatments that earlier may have helped save your life. Even in terminal cases, an early diagnosis may be able all that is needed to help make a person's life more manageable and improve his or her quality of life.
