Medical Expertise and Patterns

Another comment my friend Ed made about medicine last month that stuck with me was that he could easily tell whether or not a doctor was a newbie or an expert by reading the diagnosis. Rookie doctors are afraid of making mistakes, so they list everything they see in great detail. They basically overload you with information, and it’s not helpful. Experienced doctors recognize patterns, and they tend to get to the point quickly and concisely.    (M8V)
