Scary but interesting show
1 May 2007 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I'm sure that anyone reading this knows that this show is a documentary that takes us through the process of curing a disease that is difficult to diagnose. Well, if you didn't know that you do now.

What scares me about this show is not the fact that anyone can stumble into some bizarre diseases, it's the consistent tales of doctors blowing off the patient's symptoms by misdiagnosing the disease as something trivial. Gotta throat that's sore and been around for weeks? Oh, it's just a cold. Near 30 and you suddenly lose the ability to breathe? Oh, it's just Asthma. Have a red lump the size of a Grapefruit on your forehead? It's just a pimple, put a little Clearacile on it and you'll be fine. OK, that last one didn't happen but you get the point.

It's like these people go to a mechanic with a car that can barely be driven downhill and the mechanic says "Oh, you just need an oil change".

When a patient comes in with bizarre symptoms that only match a simple disease at a superficial level, why don't these doctors ever seem to go the extra mile and take some advanced tests? They abuse the trust of their patients when they telling them they have some BS disease and as a doctor they should know when a disease is only mimicking the symptoms of another disease!
