Turn on the TV and zap through the
channels and the chances are you'll come across an
infallible doctor - either a talking head such as
"Dr Phil" or one of the good looking fictional
doctors of House, ER, Grey's Anatomy
et al who, in a mere 60 minutes including commercial
breaks and side-plots, manage to diagnose and cure
the most obscure of illnesses. Reality is a little
different - doctors are supposed to be emotionally
neutral and even-handed with every patient; they're
explore every avenue before reaching their
considered opinion - but at the end of the day, they're just fallible humans like the rest of us,
working in an extraordinarily stressful field - and,
as a result, get about 15% of their diagnoses wrong.
