Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: 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.
