'Terse,clear,accurate' -JAMA, from a review of the 27th edition "Carries on an impressive tradition of accuracy, clarity, and conciseness going back to the early years of the century, and users who prefer the medical dictionary with the brick-red covers will find...the same amiable and authoritative guide they have come to respect and trust." -JAMA "Dorland's is reasonably priced and would be useful to anyone in the health care field. I cannot imagine a practitioner who would not want a copy of this dictionary in the office." -The Journal of Family Practice
From the Publisher
The aim of the author of this work has been to produce, in a volume of convenient size, an up-to-date Medical Dictionary, sufficiently full for the various requirements of all.... The book does not claim to be an encyclopedia; it is a dictionary, a concise and convenient word-book, aiming to furnish full definitions of the terms of medicine and kindred branches.... The author has sought a middle course between the large, unwieldy lexicon and the abridged students' dictionary, avoiding the disadvantages of each.
