Typical Reasons for a Misdiagnosis
There are several common reasons that misdiagnoses occur.
Not Enough Time with the Patient
Misdiagnoses are often due to a lack of time spent with the patient to identify their illness or condition.
Inadequate experience is another reason that a physician might misdiagnosis a patient. Inexperience can include not having enough knowledge regarding a particular condition.
A Lack of Follow-Up Care
A lack of adequate follow-up can also result in a misdiagnosis.
Improper Testing or a Lack of Testing
If a doctor fails to order a necessary test and/or orders the incorrect tests, a misdiagnosis can occur.
Commonly Misdiagnosed Conditions

Conditions that may be misdiagnosed include the following illnesses:
