Dr. Khan explains it as the art of integrating nonverbal information that a patient presents with to reach a diagnosis, reducing the need for diagnostic testing. He uses it to avoid invasive & costly procedures by making accurate on-the-spot diagnoses and treating the patient conservatively with pharmacotherapy & lifestyle changes before considering a more aggressive treatment.
