Seeking Help After A Heart Disease Misdiagnosis
Heart disease receives a lot of attention in the media, and there is much information available about preventing heart problems.

How Does Misdiagnosis Happen?
Although medical technology has advanced considerably, heart disease is still tricky to diagnose. It requires an ability to read the results of tests and a willingness to listen carefully to patients. A proper diagnosis also requires thorough analysis of the risk factors for each patient. Busy emergency room doctors and other practitioners on occasion do not take the time to exercise the care required to diagnose heart attack symptoms and other heart ailments.
Failure to diagnose and treat heart disease is found in other places, too. Primary care clinics may fail to order the right tests because they are trying to contain costs. Sometimes clinics don’t even suspect heart disease because they don’t question the patient about their risk factors and family history.
