Costs of diagnosis
Of course, to identify the cause of the pathology is sometimes very difficult. Therefore, doctors previously diagnosed called into question and confirms it definitively only after studying all the data laboratory, instrumental examinations, monitoring of the patient.

But sometimes the doctors only shrug, not knowing what the diagnosis of the patient. Without a diagnosis it is impossible to prescribe treatment. Precious time overlooked, and unrecognized disease progresses dangerously. Alas, this is not uncommon. Why?
For the past twenty years fell sharply, the overall level of professionalism of doctors. The older generation treats more of the "old way", not knowing anything about the latest drugs or innovative techniques or about new equipment. And young doctors, of course, lacks experience, and random people many of them are.

Finally, what would a complete diagnostic instrument, it is faltering. Moreover, not every diagnostician is able to accurately read and decipher information. So implicitly trust data, no x-ray or ultrasound, or even MRI is not necessary. However, a desperate patient that does not help. What should I do?
