Being told that you or a loved one has been diagnosed with an illness or disease with no known cure is not only devastating news, but is also likely information that will greatly change the life of the patient. Even if there is no known cure, a patient in Pennsylvania may be very open and optimistic about his or her options regarding the possible treatment plans offered to them. But what if these treatment plans hold serious risks? And what if the doctor did not properly diagnose the patient?
Alzheimer's disease is known as a disease that greatly impacts an individual's ability to recall memories. While memory loss is a huge indicator that a patient is suffering from Alzheimer's disease, there are other illnesses that have the primary symptoms associated with Alzheimer's disease. Therefore, this could lead to misdiagnosis and patients being treated for Alzheimer's when they are actually not suffering from the disease.
