Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Samuel N Grief, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is a comprehensive, user-friendly update of an atlas of family medicine first published in 2008. An encyclopedic listing of topics, presented in 18 parts with additional subsections, allows for quick and easy access to topics of interest.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a comprehensive clinical and photographic inventory of the breadth of topics a typical family medicine healthcare provider encounter in day-to-day practice. This book is worth its weight in gold — pictures are worth a thousand words, so this atlas is worth a million! Mission accomplished!
Audience: The audience includes all healthcare providers in primary care, including trainees such as medical students, residents, and nursing students, as well as practicing clinicians such as family physicians, internists, pediatricians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants. Dr. Usatine is a seasoned physician with decades of clinical and teaching experience. His reputation for providing concise, useful information is stellar.
Features: I have reviewed my share of books and, though I hesitate to say this, I will anyways: this book is the best one I have ever reviewed. Firstly, it covers the basics of pertinent family medicine topics from A to Z. Second, the layout allows for quick and easy access to topics of interest. I really appreciate the management subsections in each chapter and would like to point out that the recommended management and treatment options are up to date, concise, and logically organized. Each chapter is laid out in the exact same format, so readers know exactly where to go to find what they are looking for. The writing is clear and straightforward. One shortcoming, due in large part to the clear and well-structured writing, is that I wished to read more on the topics, but had to settle for another photo or two.
Assessment: As a primary care reference, this atlas stands at top of the field. It is the pinnacle of health information, marrying photographic images of medical conditions with detailed, yet succinctly written text about each of these conditions. Its usefulness is obvious to me: I will show this book to all of my trainees in clinic, as the situation arises, and confirm my plan of action with the management section, using the references to bolster my reading, as needed. This second edition has not only expanded sections, it also has more presence and authority. It is one to have for all teaching clinics.
