  • I see two concurrent issues. I personally believe psych diagnoses should have a shelf life. If a patient receives a strep throat diagnosis the doctor does not assume at another appointment, a year later, that they still have the same strep throat. My current GP has made a point to chart my misdiagnosis. This change needs to occur for accuracy, so a patient receives optimal care. As equally important, though, a patient should not have to fear their healthcare will be compromised if they suffer from a mental illness of any kind.
