    The most common misdiagnosis is... you guessed it... psychiatric disorder.

    The “Hit and Miss” approach of the Doctopus!!

    It takes a Doctopus 8 misdiagnosis to get 1 correct diagnosis!

    Favorite Top Doctopus Quotes:

    “I still get paid whether it’s a “hit or a miss”, so it’s really not a problem at all!!“

    “Upon leaving your first visit, please be sure to book 8 more visits, because you will need each one, if you expect a correct diagnosis!”

    “So why eight? Isn’t this obvious? After 8 times, I simply have run out of arms!”
