Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
This book is an excellent resource for any practicing physician in both primary and secondary care. It is very concise, easy to read and includes the most up to date advances in the therapeutic field.
The online access and the ability to cross reference a treatment option makes this book an ideal choice for any physician. It makes the contents easily and rapidly accessible from any location with an internet access such as outpatient clinics, GP surgeries and ward rounds. The pocket consult technology which allows downloading of excerpts and continually updated drug data content to a handheld device is also a useful bonus.
This is is one of the best resources providing up-to-date, succinct, concrete and practical advice on hundreds of common disorders in a very easy-to-use format.
