Xavier,

I would think not in a very scientific way. But it should be, and explained to the patient.

Doing a study with HCPs on their impression of the frequency of certain diseases/conditions in their practice and also in general practice would be interesting. The range I suspect would be eye opening.

A similar study on the length to diagnosis of rarer conditions would also be enlightening.

Should we not be able to get this information now from data bases?

Rob Bell MD.
