Can Your Mood Doom Your Diagnosis? (AUDIO)
You finally get called from your doctor's waiting room after two hours. Now, you're told to change into a paper gown and sit on a cold exam table. You have a board meeting in one hour. What mood are you in?
Tanya J. Powers of Fox News spoke with Rob and Bernie this morning about the findings of one study that suggests aggressive patients may actually hinder a doctor's ability to give a correct diagnosis.
Doctors may find it difficult to read into your symptoms if you are uneasy, anxious or aggressive.
Powers said the study suggests taking time to calm down and enter your appointment prepared for your medical interaction.
