  • Second Opinions on Medical diagnoses

    Or, just another reason I don't trust doctors if I have any choice.

    But, if you read it carefully, only 21% of diagnoses are totally wrong. Much of the 88% the second diagnosis expands on the original, rather than negates it completely.

    But, when I am forced by personal lack of knowledge or unavailability of a prescription medicine to go to a doctor, I take his diagnosis and check it out in my medical books, and on-line. Ditto for any medicines prescribed. I trust them as far as I can throw them, which is not very far these days.

    Sometimes I go to a trusted walk-in clinic to get a second opinion when I feel a bit of doubt about my overworked family doctor.
