Some I guess try the placebo affect. Others don't want to bill them. Others don't want to take a chance on getting stiffed on a bill so if there's little or no problem to treat there is less chance of not getting paid for sed treatment.

Rosy equals more chance the patient will proceed with the procedure or PROCESS. The medical care industry has to keep you interested in their over billing of third parties to keep money coming in.
Doctors will also lie with a negative prognosis as a scare tactic/motivation to keep you on an ify course of treatment and/or get you to do more ie give it that extra attention/determination on which the treatment truely depends.
