https://www.grayandwhitelaw.com/ The consequences of a misdiagnosis can be devastating: Your actual health condition can progress untreated while your doctor begins invasive or risky treatments for the wrong illness altogether. A missed diagnosis or misdiagnosis can mean unnecessary procedures, progressing conditions, and long-term consequences to your health and wellbeing.
Unfortunately, misdiagnosis is not a rare event, and some diseases and conditions are more commonly misdiagnosed than others. The most commonly misdiagnosed health conditions include:
- Heart attack
- Coronary artery disease
- Lyme disease
- Kidney disease
- Thyroid disorders
A misdiagnosis can take place in your doctor’s office, in a hospital, in the emergency room, or in a laboratory. A misdiagnosis may occur because a doctor fails to order the correct tests, because test results are not read correctly, or because a medical professional fails to recognize the symptoms of your condition. It is extremely important that you understand how your misdiagnosis took place, who was responsible, and whether they provided a reasonable, standard level of care.
