    have the wrong diagnosis?

    Can you say that you have the wrong diagnosis, when giving one or receiving one?

    Re: have the wrong diagnosis?

    You can, but it wouldn't be my preferred way of saying it.

    I went to the doctor last week but he gave me the wrong diagnosis.
    I am a doctor and last week, I gave a patient the wrong diagnosis.

    I have been wrongly diagnosed. (Patient)
    I have wrongly diagnosed someone. (Doctor)
