When a man feels a headache or feels sick, he won’t tell you that he has an influenza infection, a study found.
He’ll tell his wife that he feels well, and will then say that he’s not feeling well and should go to the doctor, researchers found.
Dr. David M. Stempel, a researcher at Boston Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School and the study’s senior author, said the results suggest that non-medical physicians often have a more positive view of their patients than doctors.
“There’s a disconnect between what patients tell us, and what doctors think,” Stemples said.
“[The study] suggests that there’s a greater understanding between physicians and patients.”
Dr. Michael Pfeifer, a neurologist and neurologist at the University of Pennsylvania, agreed.
Dr. Stephen M. Miller, a professor of neurology at Emory University, said non-traditional physicians have a responsibility to the community.
It’s important that they educate patients and patients educate doctors, he said.
“When you have a serious illness like flu, that you have to treat and treat well, there’s really no other way for patients to do that than by seeing a physician,” Miller said.
A lack of communication can lead to misdiagnosis and even a false sense of security, Miller said, adding that a lack of understanding of the flu and the potential for complications is a risk factor for hospitalizations.
The study also found that physicians who were more likely to see patients at their homes or in their offices were more aware of their patient’s symptoms.
But there was no difference in the proportion of patients who were told to go to a hospital by a doctor or the proportion who were informed that they had influenza.
The study found that in the United States, about two-thirds of doctors had seen at least one flu patient at home.
While that may not seem like a lot, it’s more than in other countries, such as Canada, where most physicians have seen at most one flu case.
More than 40 percent of American adults were diagnosed with influenza, according to a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention survey released last month.
More than half of Americans have an elevated risk for an influenza-related illness, the CDC said.
The CDC recommended that people who are hospitalized or at home should not use medications to treat flu symptoms, including the flu vaccine.
And if someone has a fever or cough, they should get tested for influenza.
