Each day, doctors see dozens of patients, most generally complaining of common pain or illness. With the high volume of cases they see, it is easy for doctors and physicians to dismiss cases or quickly diagnose with the most probable condition to meet the symptoms described. While this may work out in many cases requiring minimal investigation and treatment, inattention can quickly cause serious problems.
Doctors who fail to adequately investigate symptoms, failing to order the correct tests, can easily misdiagnose or fail to diagnose serious illness, eating up valuable time the patient had to fight the condition. These oversights can cause serious declines in health, or even death.
