Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“I really cannot find many faults with this text. Primary Care Cardiology is a wonderful book to refresh your knowledge about cardiology. I would recommend it to anyone who has a desire to learn more about cardiology in a clinically relevant way. This book gives you practical knowledge and the applications of that knowledge.”

– MD, Cardiology Fellow, Lubbock, Texas

“I felt that the author provided clear, useful explanations for things that I have to date not heard explained so well, and I am continually impressed by the practical and applicable nature of the material covered in this text. It seems very relevant and appropriate for the primary care practitioner as well as the primary care PA/NP.”

RN, FNP, PA-C, Physician Assistant, La Jolla, California

“Previously, I used multiple sources for all this information. Primary Care Cardiology compiles a lot of information in one volume that I haven’t seen pulled together in this same way before, and things are summarized in this text that I have not seen all in one source elsewhere. Overall, I think this book is an “A”!”

- MD, MPH, Instructor-Fellow, Family Medicine/Pediatrics,
Denver, Colorado
Primary Care Cardiology is a nice review of cardiovascular disease and the enormous literature that supports recent treatment recommendations. It seems like a practical guide for the majority of what one would encounter in the primary care setting. This is an important book that will serve as a nice brief review for the busy practitioner preparing for a board exam, or just searching to brush up on this critical topic.”

– MD, MSc, Assistant Professor of Medicine, Kansas City, Kansas

Primary Care Cardiology is current and up-to-date. The author has been in clinical practice for many years and draws upon that valuable and relevant experience. He provides helpful examples from his own experience and validates his hypothesis with years of results, bridging the gap between theory and practical application very effectively. As I read the text I feel like I can trust the advice given.”

– RN, FNP, PA-C, Physician Assistant, La Jolla, California

“My overall impression of Primary Care Cardiology is that some valuable additions have been made to this book during the revision process. The information is up-to-date and concise. I especially appreciate the practical, less-formal tone.”

– MD, MPH, Instructor-Fellow, Family Medicine/Pediatrics, Denver, Colorado

“The main strength of the book is the way it simplifies topics in a way that makes them easy to understand without making you feel like you are reading a remedial text. The combination of the text and the figures really makes it easy to understand these difficult concepts. Taylor’s book could be read by anyone from a medical student or nurse to a practicing physician and be equally readable and helpful.”

– MD, Cardiology Fellow, Lubbock, Texas
