|Examine history and answer the questions in this
History taking is the art of asking questions from a patient so that he/she can say exactly how he /she feels. Only then can the doctor understand the problem(s) of the patient. The above schedule is followed in modern history taking from obtaining biodata to presenting complaint to past medical history to treatment, family, social and psychiatric histories. What the patient complains of is described as symptom.
