"Clinicians will love this book. You cannot legitimately consider yourself a real dermatologist if you do not have this reference in your armamentarium. I recommend that all dermatologists buy two copies -- one for the office and one for home. This is a superb book and I am delighted to own it!"- Patricia Wong, MD (Stanford University Medical Center) 5 star Doody Rating!
