Diagnosing Illnesses

The importance of diagnosis is not to just look for the symptoms, but to find out why the patient is having the symptoms, i.e. what is the root of the problem? There are many different ways of discovering the root. The most common are sight, question and answer, smell, and touch (pulse).
