Why Physicians Err in Diagnosis

Too much reliance on blood work and if it doesn't show well past the 
ranges, then the patient is lying/its all in their head?

I've seen that one very, very frequently.

 From what I've also seen, across the board, physicians are not taught 
how bloodwork relates to disease, how each item relates to another item 
to rule out differential diagnoses, and the better choices to check for 
specific problems.
