Difficult: I know of no board certified physician of any specialty that would ever give a fraudulant diagnosis. Mistake and wrong diagnosises get made every day but in most cases the right diagnosis is made in an attempt to get the patient feeling better. If you have questions and are unsure or uneasy with the diagnosis ask the physicain who made the diagnosis and/or get a second opinion from another doctor.
