Although we trust doctors to help us stay healthy and get well, doctors sometimes make mistakes. While some mistakes have few consequences, others severely affect the health and wellbeing of patients. This is particularly true for patients displaying neurological symptoms.
Neurological conditions are often misdiagnosed because the symptoms are generic. However, with the proper medical examination and scans, a doctor can correctly diagnose a patient’s medical issue. Unfortunately, some doctors are not always as careful as they should be, and this can lead to a misdiagnosis.
The best way for doctors to avoid a misdiagnosis is to collect a detailed patient history, perform a thorough neurological exam, and utilize appropriate medical tests and scans. Failing to do so could cause significant harm to the patient or even death.
