Welcome to “UberDx”!
Kind of a snappy title, right? If you find it offensive, please let us know.
It is about Overdiagnosis. So think “uber” as in “over”, but really it’s about “better” as well, because we all want to make better diagnoses and avoid making bad ones. We are focusing on the bad diagnoses – the ones that hurt, mislead, mislabel – “the diagnosis of disease that will never cause symptoms or death during a patient’s lifetime”.
We are hoping that you follow this with delight. Go ahead and start a conversation!
