[REVIEWER’S EXPERT OPINION]
Robert Michael Garcia, Medical degree (University of Arizona College of Medicine)
This is a comprehensive, up-to-date overview of common clinical problems seen in a primary care practice. Tables and illustrations provide information in an organized and easy-to-understand, summarized fashion.
As a busy family physician for the past 25 years, I find the book very useful and applicable.
The book concentrates on common medical problems and diseases that busy practitioners will see on a daily basis. Pertinent information regarding current diagnosis and treatment are organized and summarized in easy-to-understand boxes and tables. The information provided is evidence-based, and references are from major journals.
This is an extremely useful resource for researching a particular medical problem or if there is a specific question regarding a medical issue that is not clear. It is also especially useful as a quick reference and can be added to practitioner’s short list of "go to" books and resources when seeing patients in a busy practice setting. Updates to this edition justify replacing previous editions.
