Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Hemant Kumar Satpathy, MD (Saint Joseph Hospital)
Description: This well written, comprehensive book covers primary care of women. This is an update of a book published in 1996.
Purpose: The purpose is to help clinicians begin to incorporate gender specifics into the care they provide. In this day and age these are worthy objectives and the book meets them.
Audience: It is geared towards primary care providers including internists, family physicians, obstetricians-gynecologists, as well medical students and residents.
Features: The book covers most of the female-related health problems that are encountered in the primary care provider's office, but it does not cover the common obstetric care issues. The best things about this book are its up-to-date content and its easy to read style. The subjects are well chosen, too.
Assessment: This update was especially needed because of the changes since 1996, particularly in the field of HRT. I would highly recommend this to all primary care providers. It covers most of the common health problems we see in the care of women and the information is easy to understand can be absorbed in a short time. The cost of the book also impresses me - it is worth the price.
