When you are injured or ill, you expect to be able to trust in your health care professional. Sadly, doctors and medical staff can not always be trusted and health care professionals do not always uphold the standards of care set by their profession. Some of the most unfortunately common manifestations of this are in missed and / or incorrect medical diagnoses.
A wrong or missed diagnosis could lead to other potential illnesses or injuries, or even death in some cases. If an illness or injury is not properly diagnosed, it can not be properly treated. If you or someone you love has been improperly diagnosed by a healthcare professional contact us today at 800-242-2874.
Doctors can fail to diagnose a condition by either providing a wrong diagnosis, or in some instances, by failing to provide a concrete diagnosis altogether. Sadly, when a patient’s condition goes undiagnosed, he or she could fail to receive necessary treatment that, depending on the situation, could be life-saving. Without a timely, correct diagnosis, the following conditions could easily cause serious and potentially fatal damage:
While failing to receive an accurate diagnosis for a condition can be dangerous, being incorrectly diagnosed can be just as dangerous. In these situations, not only is a patient’s underlying condition not identified and treated, but patients could be subject to unnecessary medical treatment for a condition they do not have, which could ultimately worsen their underlying condition.
