Published Reviews

    "The Harriet Lane Handbook is the key portable resource for pediatric resident physicians. It contains management algorithms for all major pediatric disease processes and an extensive updated pharmacy with accurate pediatric dosing recommendations. This is supposed to be the "pearl book" for pediatric house officers, and many pediatric training programs provide this to their residents. The updated version is always necessary due to changes in the formulary section, infectious disease sections, and the current vaccination schedule guidelines, which do change from year to year."
