5.0 out of 5 stars Best resource ever! November 16, 2011
By sharon
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I use this book at my full-time job, and at home while working a part-time position doing basically the same type of work. I wouldn't be without it... it's absolutely the best resource to find the proper condition associated with abbreviations that the doctors are not supposed to be using on the forms I code. Love the larger size too, much easier to handle and to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for medical coders April 25, 2012
Format:Paperback
I have used this book for over 20 years. This is my 4th book, buying newer editions every few years. It is a great tool for medical coders. My only wish is that it was printed in spiral bound form. The book won't stay open unless I hold it.

Ask anyone who has spent more than a few minutes looking through medical records and you'll hear unanimously that the number of abbreviations used by the medical profession is simply mindblowing. I formerly relied on several different online medical abbreviation and terminology websites with only partial success. Common knowledge states that online, searchable computer databases are far superior to antiquated paper books, right? Not for looking up medical abbreviations. I'd say I had a success rate of around 80-85% finding definitions for abbreviations using the online resources. With Davis' book, I can recall one (1) abbreviation in the past several months that wasn't there and I refer to this book on nearly a daily basis. And it's actually quicker to look it up in the book than to hunt online, especially if my first choice comes up blank and I have to go to a second website. Highly recommended.

Must have in a medical reference library. Able to find everything unlike other reference media. I like it because it is small to carry with me.
