Overview

This volume of Lippincott's Primary Care Series will help family practitioners, internists, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants understand, diagnose, and treat the most common rheumatologic problems seen in the primary care setting.

Key points are provided for those topics that don't fit this format.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Hyon Ju Park, MD (Washington University Medical Center)
Description: This book focuses on basic rheumatology information for primary care physicians.
Purpose: The purpose is to help primary care doctors both identify and assist in the care of rheumatology patients. This is an important objective, considering that many community physicians feel overwhelmed and may feel unprepared to take care of autoimmune patients.
Audience: This book is geared towards primary care physicians according to the authors, a rheumatologist and an internist.
Features: What stands out in this book are the illustrative pictures that clearly communicate what the authors describe.
Assessment: This is a useful resource for primary care practitioners to use to understand more about rheumatological diseases and identify which patients need to be referred to a rheumatologist.
