A prompt diagnosis is essential when it comes to treating illnesses and disease. When a patient’s diagnosis is delayed, it can lead to devastating medical complications, physical and emotional suffering, and even fatalities. Negligent medical practices are often the cause of a delayed diagnosis. Proper healthcare necessitates that doctors conduct necessary research, order essential tests, and attend to a patient’s questions or concerns.
Illnesses commonly overlooked:
- Thyroid disorders
- Bacterial infections
- Viral infections
- Kidney disorders
- Liver disorders
- Parkinson’s disease
