Confident Handling Of Failure-To-Diagnose Cases

When you go to a health care provider to seek treatment for a medical condition, you have the right to expect that the doctor will use reasonable means to reach a proper diagnosis. If there is any cause for suspicion of a serious condition, but the facility lacks the expertise or diagnostic equipment, the doctor should refer you to a specialist in the appropriate medical field. The proper standard of care is for a physician to reach a differential diagnosis and proceed from that point, not to simply diagnose based upon the easiest to treat.
