Some patients complain about everything, and hand their doctor a diagnostic jigsaw puzzle, loaded with confusing facts and conflicts. But other patients down-play pertinent information to themselves, leaving out critical information.
Do you downplay symptoms? Don't want to be a hassle? Dr. Moser makes clear that it is best to be up front and honest with your healthcare provider, so they can make an accurate diagnosis and treatment for your ailment.
