I believe that Competent medicine means to treat the person, not the disease. Rely heavily on the history and the exam, as well as your own experience and intuition – and not spend time ordering and chasing lab tests and x-rays. These are to augment a physician's skill, not try and make a diagnosis apart from intelligent interpretation of signs and symptoms. I am of the old-school, which feels that if you truly listen to patients, they will give you the diagnosis, along with having a broad base of education and experience to recognize a condition when it presents itself. No shotgun approach with me. It's more sleuthing until it cones down on what must be the accurate diagnosis. And not a lot of extraneous testing, which often only reveals red herrings that then have to be chased down. That is time-consuming and expensive, as well as frustrating to the patients. A little time and smarts at the onset can save hours or weeks of confusion and missteps in the long run.Read more
