Common misapprehensions before a visit to the doctor
Frequently encountered patient errors – simply explained
Instead of FAQ (frequently asked questions) we provide our patients with an insight into FMM (frequently made mistakes).
There is a lot of half-knowledge on the Internet. Some patients attempt their own diagnoses with “Dr. Google”. This can be dangerous if symptoms are misclassified. And it often causes unnecessary stress when patients classify harmless signs as life-threatening.
While our information goes beyond the level of saying that smoking is a major health hazard, it is by no means a substitute for a medical degree and a license to practice medicine. We want to strengthen your understanding that there is no substitute for a visit to the doctor. It is not without reason that doctors study for a decade or more, including all further education and training, before they are trusted to deal with specialist issues.
A lot of time is wasted in medical consultations worldwide when patients having consulted “Dr. Google” tell the real doctors what would be best to do. We therefore describe some of the typical mistakes that lead to widespread misconceptions. In this way we gain time for our work: sound diagnostics at the highest medical-technical level, intervention and therapy according to medical standards.
Take care of your health – and trust us as specialists to provide you with the best possible advice and treatment.
