How to deal: While it’s great when a patient is informed and involved in the medical process, it becomes a problem when it comes in the way of the real treatment. What the Self-Diagnoser needs is a good dose of reality. Explain to him that every patient is different, and while their diagnosis may be correct, you still need to explore all options and confirm it independently. If he continues to push his diagnosis, leave it for the doctor to deal with.
