Overview

In this Fourth Edition of Primary Care Medicine, Drs. Allan H. Goroll and Albert G. Mulley, Jr. have created a comprehensive text that covers everything from Otolaryngology to Psychiatry. Thoroughly revised to cover the nuances of the managed care system as well as laboratory tests, diagnoses, and therapies, the book provides a problem-oriented, practical approach to primary care medicine. New to this edition is information on chronic pain, domestic violence, ethical challenges of managed care, adolescent medicine, and alternative and complementary medicine.

This book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Journal of Family Practice
Praise for the previous edition: Goroll does it again. The third edition of Primary Care Medicine gets two thumbs up: one for readability and the second for practicality....This is the gold standard for primary care texts.
JAMA
Praise for the previous edition: ...beautifully organized and tightly written...residents and practitioners who want a succinct overview of the problems encountered in adult primary care will find this an invaluable resource...Primary Care Medicine is an impressive achievement and a useful tool for clinicians who practice primary care in today's environment.
Sholeh Vaziri
This is an updated reference book that provides an overview of primary care medicine. The purpose is to serve as a source of practical information for use in clinical decision-making in the ambulatory setting. Although it is difficult to exhaustively cover such a topic, this book meets the goal of giving the reader concise, up-to-date guidelines in the treatment of adult patients. Given the recent surge of interest in primary care, this book is a much needed resource. Although there are other books that address this topic, the organization of information in this text makes it useful as a day-to-day reference, both during and after hours. The book is targeted to practitioners, but health care providers at many levels will find it useful. The authors represent their field well, and contributors provide information in specialty areas. The problem-oriented focus emphasizes commonly encountered patient complaints. In addition to addressing diagnostic and treatment issues, the editors also discuss topics such as cost-effective care, estimating risks and benefits, and when to refer patients to a specialist. Although the book does not contain a large number of illustrations, there are some charts and tables that help to outline differential diagnoses and treatment plans. The references are up-to-date and include comments summarizing the content of each reference. This feature will save the reader time in searching for additional information. This book is useful for the health care professional in primary care medicine. As an office text, the practitioner will find it a helpful tool in the daily management of adult outpatients.

New edition of a text that emphasizes the key clinical data essential to decision-making and critical use of tests in primary care medicine. Goroll and Mulley (both of Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School) present 16 chapters by a range of medical experts that discuss the principles of primary care; systemic, cardiovascular, respiratory, gastrointestinal, hematological and oncologic, endocrinological, gynecological, genitourinary, musculoskeletal, neurologic, dermatologic, opthalmic, psychiatric, and ear, nose and throat problems; and allied fields. Each chapter ends with practical recommendations that incorporate the best available evidence, expert consensus guidelines, clinical judgment, and everyday common sense. Annotation c.
