happened to me...got misdiagnosised .... 3 days later i have a gash down my side and spent 5 days in the ICU the first 24 hours I was so critical they had to keep me on constant 24 hour watch ....all because they said I had gastroenteritis and no appendicitis... if he could do his job I would have been in and out of hosipital within two days rather then 14 days

An older neighbor of mine got a diagnosis of cancer and he even set up chemo treatments and all that and then decided to get a second opinion. Found he didn't have cancer at all but another condition.
With sometimes dozens of conditions sharing symptoms I'm surprised it doesn't happen more often. Things will get worse under Obamacare as diagnostic tests get rationed to fit the govt. spending guidelines. You can't add 40m people to a system with a shrinking practitioner base and limit diagnostic expenses and have it turn out well
