Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Donald R. Frey, MD (Creighton University Medical Center)
Description: This is a complete, practical guide to the management of the day-to-day problems encountered by primary care physicians. This is the 51st edition of this popular, annually updated text.
Purpose: The purpose, "to provide up-to-date information on disease management in a format that makes material easy to find and assimilate," is meticulously followed throughout the book with the editor's multisystem approach.
Audience: Although written for both residents and practitioners, it is the busy primary care physician who will find this book most useful. In his 16th year as editor, Dr. Rakel continues to present a text that is both authoritative and readable.
Features: The organ system orientation touches upon virtually every significant medical problem encountered by primary care physicians. There is liberal use of tables, charts, and algorithms to enhance access to key information topics. The personalized treatment approach by contributors lends itself to practical, day-to-day implementation of the recommended treatment strategies. The ICD-9 codes on the inside cover of the text are an additional, practical touch. Since the focus is primarily on therapy, diagnosis and pathophysiology are necessarily de-emphasized. In addition, some purists may find fault with the lack of references.
Assessment: This book continues to be one of the best single texts of 1500 pages or less to comprehensively catalog and describe treatment for the hundreds of medical problems that confront primary care physicians on a daily basis. The annual update format ensures timely information, and the practical approach makes this text very user friendly.
