Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: G. Robert Parkerson III, MD, MPH (Baylor College of Medicine)
Description: This general medicine reference covers topics especially relevant for the primary care clinician. Chapters are largely arranged by organ system and follow a logical progression. This textbook is updated on a yearly basis.
Purpose: It is intended as a single source reference in general medicine and primary care for the practicing clinician in the ambulatory and hospital settings. A practical approach to diagnosis and treatment is taken, and the text is concise and readable. These features make it an excellent reference for the practicing generalist or for the specialist on general matters.
Audience: It is written for internists, family physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants, as well as students and residents in these disciplines. The contributors and editors are expert in the fields they cover.
Features: Topics covered include those integral to general internal medicine and primary care, such as health maintenance, geriatrics, preoperative evaluation, and traditional topics according to organ system. In addition, chapters on ophthalmology, ENT, gynecology, obstetrics, and psychiatry are included, making this an ideal text for the generalist. Infectious diseases are particularly well covered with yearly updated information on HIV/AIDS.
Assessment: This book is of high quality. Its breadth, readability, and focused approach make it particularly useful for the busy internist, family physician, or allied health professional. Its organization and clear referencing to more in-depth literature also facilitate further study into a particular topic. Key Internet addresses are referenced to facilitate access to current, peer-reviewed information. Overall, this is an excellent reference text.
