Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is a must-have resource for any physician, student, or resident. Not only does it comprehensively discuss procedures that arise in the primary care setting, it also describes a vast number of procedures that arise in subspecialty settings. It gives physicians the tools to both perform procedures and educate patients on subspecialty procedures."- Heather Huang, MD (University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health) 5 star Doody Rating!

3.0 out of 5 stars a lot of breadth, little depth April 29, 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book based on excellent reviews on Amazon. I was disappointed. The book covers a lot of material, much of it of little or no interest to most of primary care doctors. For example it describes blepharoplasty and EGD, and a lot of similar procedures that most of PCPs refer to specialists. At the same time most of the procedure descriptions are covered very superficially, providing very few details, and not really useful for someone who is trying to learn procedures. Photos are of very poor quality, and are not helpful. The big drawback for a procedure book is the absence of DVD demonstrating procedures. Considering its huge volume, I decided it is worth the price I paid, and I decided to keep it. But I wish the authors devoted more space to relevant procedures performed by most PCPs and added good quality photos and DVD to help understand procedures.

3.0 out of 5 stars Defective Index May 6, 2013
By JCD
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Excellent resource but defective index that stops in the F's, pg 1708. At least the copy I received from Amazon had this defect. Publication date is 2011, I am surprised this hasn't been addressed. For a text in excess of $120 I would expect a more polished product.

I recently got this book. I borrowed it from attendings in medical school and finally decided to get one of my own. I've already used it. It is easy to use and extremely helpful. I'm positive I will use it often for many years to come.
