Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: peter m daher, md(Creighton University Medical Center)
Description: This text presents a concise and practical approach to developing a correct bedside diagnosis for a patient's acute complaint.
Purpose: The purpose is to assist the physician in developing a working diagnosis from the patient's initial clinical presentation. As a rapid reference for correlating clinical signs and symptoms to clinical diagnosis, this book clearly achieves the author' s goals.
Audience: The book is targeted primarily to medical students and residents. Additionally, practicing primary care physicians may benefit from the pragmatic orientation.
Features: Diagnostic approaches to some of the most common presenting chief complaints are covered. The complaints are sub-categorized to organ systems, which makes for easy utilization of this text. Possible clinical findings for each complaint are described, with emphasis on utilizing information from the history and physical to make the most accurate diagnosis possible.
Assessment: This textbook would have served me tremendously during my earlier years of training. It is most useful for medical students and residents, but is helpful to practicing physicians as well. The author's practical approach to the diagnosis of the most commonly presenting medical problems is greatly appreciated, and any busy clinician could use this text to become more efficient. The manner in which the text strongly emphasizes differential diagnosis is appreciated as well.
