Medicine is just as much of an art as it is a science. What this means in practice is that, ultimately, a doctor or other medical professional are really making their best educated guess about what is ailing their patients when giving a diagnosis.
Most people in Arizona know when they are not feeling well and something is not quite right. Sometimes people may also know what may be wrong, such as having a cold, the flu or other common illnesses. However, people do not always know what may be wrong. Other times they may experience symptoms that are common for colds or the flu that are actually indications that something much more serious is wrong. In these situations, people rely on doctors to diagnose what may be wrong and how to treat it.
When people go see doctors and other medical professionals they expect that they will be treated correctly for their injury or illness and start to get better. However, sometimes there is nothing that a doctor can do to treat the illness or injury and it will not get better no matter what they do. Other times, however, the condition gets worse because the doctor failed to diagnose the injury or illness. Doctors are supposed to try to diagnose the problem based on the symptoms that a person is suffering from at the time.
