"Poor diagnostic ability"

Doctors and consultants take information and fail to engage in a meaningful discussion with the patient -which would allow for easier diagnosis. The lack of feedback from them is a barrier to earlier diagnosis in that other symptoms or symptoms that have come and gone or symptom that were not known to be related to the disease or condition are denied expression. In my situation a simple search on Google provided a diagnosis that evaded the doctors for several weeks.
