I bought this to review for PANRE. Having been in a surgical sub-specialty for the last 11 years I needed a good overview in general medicine. The layout is clear & the information is up-to-date. It is a good reference for those who need to review their long-forgotten general medicine as it is relatively concise (compared to, say, Harrison's). I have been able to cover a chapter in a day or two. They have a nice "Essentials of Diagnosis" that prefaces certain sections, ie. stuff that will kill your patient & you need to know! If I pass, it will have been an excellent investment!

I am a practicing physician & regularly buy one of the CMDT series to keep as a current quick treatment reference. I have been using these books since medical school. They have never let me down. The info is pithy & comprehensive. I find it quite useful

As a pharmacist, we are many times put into the position of having to know the same disease state guidelines and treatment therapies as physicians. Finding that information can be frustrating if you don't keep a good library of resources. This Lang resource is what you need. Quick and concise is what I would characterize this as. Having Dipiro's, Koda Kimble and Goodmans and Gillmans for pharmacotherapy/therapeutics, all of which are good in their own way, this book in some ways outdoes them.

Don't get me wrong, you won't find the in depth MOA's, pathways etc of drugs in this resource. What you will find are the basics of disease states, treatments parameters and guidelines. For example, Chapter 10, Heart Disease has nearly 50 different disease states included. Some topics such as STEMI, NSTEMI and Chronic Stable Angina are covered more indepth than say Tricuspid Stenosis, but being able to find this type of information in one source quick and easy is more than worth the price of this book.

The quality of the paper is good, highlighting doesn't really leak through to the other side of the paper, but can be seen slightly from the other side. It is soft cover and heavy. Very good book and a must for heath professionals of all disciplines. Be sure to get the latest version though, guidelines are updated periodically so keep current.

I am a doctor in the san francisco bay area and use this book on a regular basis. It is the most comprehensive diagnostic book on the market. It is a must have for all health care providers.

My husband is a retired physician and has always relied on this particular book for reference. His was quite out of date so he was thrilled to be able to get this current edition. We use it frequently as a reference tool. Excellent book!

Not dumbed down, hits the imporant point of diagnosis and management in a concise manner. Lots of topics covered in the text, making it useful for indepth reading but definitely too big of a book to lug around the hospital.

What to say, the best book in the business, just a little much to read, but if you need to know something read it, it's there

Sometimes I just sit and read through this because the information is clear and useful. Id recommend it to anyone who has a desire to learn more, anyone who needs good reference material or any students as you can not have too many books.
