Signs of a Wrong Diagnosis
Since you are likely unfamiliar with the normal course of recovery from a particular ailment, it may be difficult for you to determine whether you have received an incorrect diagnosis or your doctor has failed to diagnose a serious underlying problem. The following are some indications, however, that you may wish to seek a second opinion:
- Failure to improve after treatment
- Symptoms are different from those associated with your diagnosis
- A diagnosis was made on the basis of one laboratory test and without further confirmation
- Accurate diagnosis of your supposed condition requires a specific test which you did not receive
