Editorial Reviews


'With this clinical guide, psychiatrist Allan Peterkin and family physician Cathy Risdon have made an outstanding contribution to the global literature on gay and lesbian health... It would be an advantage to our communities if this book were a mandatory read for medical trainees and adopted as a staple resource by Canadian physicians in their daily clinical work'

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As an Infectious Diseases specialist I had to be adept with the issues related to same sex relationships. I bought this book way before I even started my sub-specialist training and it has served me well. I was more aware of the issues of my patients and me being so knowledgeable helped them to open up and trust me a lot more which is what every physician wants... I would recommend it.
