Misdiagnosis

Nice guy. But, after many visits, over the course of 18+ months, he couldn't figure out that his long-term patient was seriously ill. Several unexplained falls, confusion to the point of not remembering where she lived in order to be able to drive home, and general, ongoing malaise didn't raise any red flags. Instead, this doc diagnosed the flu, sinus infection, poor diet.... Ultimate diagnosis, after finally being referred to an ENT doc, who referred her to a neurosurgeon: inoperable malignant brain tumor with 3 months to live. But for a year-and-a-half, totally incompetent medical care. Would an earlier accurate diagnosis have saved her life? Who knows.
