“Dr. Bob,” the “academic internist” pictured above, makes an important point in this blog post.  All well and good, he maintains, to have carefully thought out guidelines for treating medical problems. BUT. He points out that as much thought must be given to figuring out which patients are appropriate for treatment with these guidelines as to the guidelines themselves. So often we talk about treatment guidelines. How about diagnostic guidelines.

Bottom Line. Yup! And there also needs to be guidelines on how to double back and reconsider what to do when guidelines fail a particular patient!!!
