Published Reviews

    "A significant portion of the book is dedicated to interviewing the patient and includes discussions about the use of interpreters and the possible responses from patients. The physical examination section is organized into the traditional organ system approach. Each chapter has a subsection on the clinicopathological correlations, which gives this book a unique advantage over others. The graphics are extraordinarily well presented in full color. The full text is available on the Inkling website and is simple to use on both a laptop and a smartphone. This web-based version has additional chapters on diversity, complementary and alternative medicine and the assessment of nutritional status. This is an extremely valuable, updated edition of a previously very helpful and informative book.:-Vincent F Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP(Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences) Doody Reveiw: 5 stars
