About the Author

Diana Garza received her Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN, followed by an additional year to complete her Medical Technology requirements at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Her interest in laboratory sciences and in teaching led her to earn a Masters in Science Education at the Peabody School of Vanderbilt University. She worked at Vanderbilt Medical Center in the Microbiology Department while a graduate student. A move back to her home state of Texas led her to a collaborative graduate program with Baylor College of Medicine at the University of Houston, and resulted in her Doctorate of Education in Allied Health Education and Administration, all the while she worked in the Microbiology Laboratory at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center (MDACC).  Her laboratory and teaching experience continued at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston and for many years at MDACC, where she later became the Administrative Director of the Division of Laboratory Medicine. While in Houston, Drs Garza and Becan-McBride were involved in numerous courses for technologists, nurses, and physicians to teach phlebotomy techniques. As young faculty members, they began to develop curriculum materials for their own use and in 1984, collaborated in publishing one of the first comprehensive textbooks focused solely on phlebotomy pracitices. Their successful coauthoring partnership has endured for over 2 decades. In 1990, Dr Garza joined the faculty of Texas Woman’s University-Houston Center, where she taught internet-based quality improvement courses and became editor of several journals and continuing education publications. She has taught extensively, been a reviewer/inspector in many regulatory processes, participated in accreditation procedures, and authored, edited, and published numerous manuscripts in the field of phlebotomy, health care, and quality management. She currently sits on numerous health care advisory boards, nationwide committees, consults with companies and organizations, and continues her writing and editorial pursuits, mostly in the field of phlebotomy.

I used this required text to pass the ASCP exam that the CA Dept of Health requires in order to gain licensure. The text had all topics that were on exam. I tested at the Pearson VUE center in Anaheim, CA. Pearson also happens to be the publisher of this text. It is an easy read, compared to what I have seen out there. The format is very close to what is on the state board exam. Cannot beat the price, as it was over 100 bucks at the campus bookstore. The book was required for an accredited, NAACLS program I completed. It is the same book they used at CAL State Long Beach, CA. when the phlebotomy program was offered there.

I would not recommend this book. A lot of the phlebotomy procedures are poorly explained while some are not even mentioned. I frequently had to look up information on the internet for clarification.

All the information in the bold blocks is overwhelming in relation to all of the additional information given in the actual reading of paragraphs and sentences.
Also, does not seem organized very well. The beginning chapters use acronyms that have not even been identified in the reading at that point.
Some of the review questions at the end of the Chapters ask questions that have not necessarily been covered.

Actually reviewed by Kay Foley. I, her sister, just posted it for her, while she is inaccessable.

Good Luck!

It was the book that was needed for class. I bought it early, got it way before I needed it and it was in brand new condition. No complaints here. I know whenever I am looking for textbooks, I always compare between Amazon and the school bookstore.

The "used" copy of the Phlebotomy Handbook was in almost pristine condition although it was missing the poster in the back with draw and tube information. I was pleased and happy with my purchase. I will continue to use Amazon in the future.

I received this book and found it really useful while taking my phlebotomy courses. It was listed as good condition but I found that the book was in better condition than the classroom books made available to our group.
