Praise for The Color Atlas of Family Medicine for iPhone and iPad!

"While there is no shortage of quality medical applications available for iPhone and iPad, there are very few that offer the quality and breadth of information that you’ll find in The Color Atlas of Family Medicine....Bottom Line: The Color Atlas of Family Medicine for iPhone and iPad is a truly comprehensive resource for family physicians, general practitioners, internal medicine residents and medical students alike."—Tapscape

From a JAMA Review

"This book was a genuine treat to review. The more than 1000 pages are chock full of figures and photographs illustrating virtually every illness seen by a family physician or other specialist. But this book, edited by 4 family physicians and an obstetrician-gynecologist, is much more than simply a pictorial atlas. Various chapters are written by family physicians as well as specialists.

"The Color Atlas of Family Medicine is a comprehensive visual guide to daily patient care. It will be valuable to medical students, residents, and all practicing physicians. I recommend that it be included in the library of every family medicine residency program. It is an excellent reference and it will be enjoyed by anyone who reads the patient stories or anyone who just wants to look at the figures and photographs. I think this book is a classic example of why the Internet will try but never take the place of a well-written hardbound textbook."


"The Color Atlas of Family Medicine is a wonderful compendium of 1500 clinical images supported by comprehensive, evidence-based information useful to any clinician. It is the kind of book that many of us who practice clinical medicine had hoped to find, but never succeeded; that is, until now. Whereas this book will definitely appeal to those who love to examine clinical photographs, it is also an excellent resource for almost every topic encountered in a standard primary practice....In this day and age when new products must compete with the convenience of computer-generated information, this atlas has a unique competitive edge. This entertaining and useful 1095-page resource is available 24/7, regardless of whether or not the electricity is running. I have a very rural practice and this atlas has become an invaluable adjunct to my database of information at hand. In my opinion, it is underpriced and well worth the investment. It makes a wonderful gift to any student of medicine or clinician and will entertain and educate for years. I am truly grateful for its creation."—The Permanente Journal


"This is what a modern textbook should be. It is concise yet comprehensive in the breadth of topics and, as the title suggests, robust with color photographs of extraordinarily good quality.

"The editors state clearly in the preface that family physicians see a wide variety of conditions that lend themselves to an atlas such as this, and they support the pictures with evidence-based information, which makes this book so worthwhile and valuable. The editors and contributors balance the images and text, in an extremely useful way.

"Although the title puts the focus on family physicians, the book clearly is a tremendous resource for all, including internal medicine practitioners, students, and those in every specialty who may only rarely encounter some of these conditions. The list of contributors is extensive and well balanced, bringing together experts from all specialties of medicine.

"By far, this is one of the best, most useful textbooks I have seen in a very long time. It is a must for the library of every primary care physician."

    The Color Atlas of Family Medicine 4.5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.

    Easy to find most topics and the color photos are invaluable in identifying diseases. Wish I had something like this available 30 years ago.
    Anonymous More than 1 year ago
    I was amazed with the usefulness of this book during a rotation during my fourth year of medical school. The photos are amazing in clarity and relevance and complement the text material very well. I found the dermatology section very useful, especially since our curriculum during medical school is skim on dermatology. I also appreciate the organization of material in each chapter and how easy it is to briefly read material or look at visual aids for help with diagnosis. I will definitely continue to use this book as a resource during my residency as well as during practice. I would recommend this book for ALL MEDICAL STUDENTS and all primary care residents. I also recommend every library in hospitals, medical schools, and residency programs keep at least one copy.
