Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Patricia Wong, MD (Stanford University Medical Center)
Description: This is a beginning dermatology book for nondermatologists. Color photographs of all the common skin disorders are accompanied by a clinical synopsis of presentation, symptoms, treatment, and some clinical tips in differentiating disorders from similar appearing skin eruptions.
Purpose: The purpose is to help nondermatologists diagnose and treat patients with common skin diseases.
Audience: The audience is primary care physicians. Unlike a lot of dermatology primers, this one is written by a dermatologist.
Features: The author does a nice job of including the most common skin problems a primary care physician is likely to encounter and explaining the physical exam signs to look for in order to arrive at the correct diagnosis. Simple diagrams explaining how to freeze and perform a punch biopsy are in the appendix. The book provides a framework upon which to start learning dermatology. The information is accurate, and helpful clinical tips from a seasoned clinician are to be relished.
Assessment: This is a good deal for the price and makes what can often be a puzzling specialty a little less daunting for the uninitiated.
