Although it is very difficult to determine if you have been misdiagnosed by a medical professional, there are certain warning signs that should alert you to this possibility. One of the most common warning signs is if you do not respond to a prescribed treatment, especially after following the treatment plan for a good amount of time. Another sign is if you were supposed to receive certain treatment or tests and you know that the doctor did not actually perform these. One of the few ways to conclusively establish if you have been misdiagnosed is to seek confirmation and evaluation from another qualified doctor.
