5 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW

"This is for everyone looking for medical information, from house officers, residents, and practicing physicians to patients and family members. There is very little unnecessary text and the book is quite easy to use with a modicum of medical knowledge....This book has the tremendous benefit of being updated yearly and thus has stood the test of time for recognizing what is helpful and what works. It is well worth the price and a great addition to a primary care practitioner's library."—Doody's Review Service

This annual text is the first that I examine for a review of questions regarding medical diagnosis and treatment. It is wide in scope, covering each subject with succinct thoroughness. At times there are references to current research; I could wish for more. It is a medical text with medical nomenclature throughout, and therefore does not have a glossary. Such nomenclature may well make this volume sufficiently abstruse that a general reader and young student may not find it appropriate for them, without a medical dictionary at hand. For me, it is a source I would not be without for a quick and easy look at a new problem. Nurses, as well as doctors, both specialists and generalists, could always find something newly revisited that could be of interest. A selling point is that it is updated annually.
