Why is it important to obtain a good history?

The history (the story) is often the most important part of the general examination. Most problems can be identified and diagnoses can be made on a good history. Every effort must, therefore, be made to obtain a clear and detailed history.

A carefully taken history will provide the information needed to make the correct diagnosis.
