Being A Good Patient

Dr. Andres Soto, Chief of Hospital Medicine with Baptist Health South Florida, says as much technology they have, the history of what happened to the patient is still the most important thing to do in a diagnosis. "Every information the patient can give us is extremely important, that's what we use to create a diagnosis and make sure that we do the necessary tests to confirm what we are suspecting." He also explains a lot of the things that they see can be preventable or can be treated in a different way if they have the information on time.
