- Inadequate Knowledge and Outdated Practices:
Competent doctors stay up-to-date with the latest medical advancements and best practices in their field. On the other hand, an incompetent doctor may display a lack of knowledge or fail to keep pace with evolving medical research. They may rely on outdated treatment protocols, prescribe unnecessary medications or tests, or overlook potential alternatives. Incompetence in staying informed can hinder accurate diagnoses and appropriate treatment plans.
