More About the Author

Jill Grimes, MD, practices family medicine in Austin, Texas. She is a clinical instructor for UMASS Medical School through an innovative internet-based ethics course for medical students. Dr. Grimes is passionate about all types of preventative medicine. She'd much prefer to help her patients lose weight and create healthy life habits than add on more prescriptions to treat their high blood pressure, high cholesterol or diabetes, and she definitely practices what she preaches. Dr. Grimes has a holistic approach to medicine, understanding that the whole person- their body, emotions, genetics and attitude- all play a role in health and wellness.

Dr. Grimes has been an associate editor for the 5-Minute Clinical Consult since 2008, focusing on the practical application of the best evidence-based scientific research. She is a spokesperson for the American Academy of Family Physicians with expertise in nutrition, adolescent medicine and dementia. Additionally, trying a new approach to adolescent education, Dr. Grimes wrote the award-winning book, Seductive Delusions-how everyday people catch STDs. "We have plenty of accurate data and educational handouts out there, but real stories impact with far more power. STDs are not lurking in dark corners, but are prevalent across all social, economic and racial boundaries." Seductive Delusions has been an interactive part of the high school curriculum in the San Antonio, Texas, (NEISD) since 2010, engaging students and their teachers in thoughtful discussions.

Dr. Grimes loves creating and thinking outside the box- whether it's in medicine or in her role as a girl scout leader, grade level advisor, or mother. She and her daughters were involved with scouting for a decade, then joined the National Charity League to continue mother-daughter service to their community. Favorite charities? Saint Louise House, Mobile Loaves & Fishes, Meals on Wheels, Reading is Fundamental, and Special Olympics. She encourages everyone to "check out your neighborhood charities and get involved!"

Pet peeve? Fast-food medicine. "We need to stop popping pills for problems that life style modifications will solve. Medicines are wonderful and often necessary, but let's not rely on them to be the whole solution."

I loved my paper version of this and with my new Kindle was anxious to have an e-copy that can easily be transported where I go. It has all the same information as my paper version, however the algorithms are grainy and hard to read. When I click on the hyperlink the print is very small (can't be adjusted like regular print as is a "photo"). Even once I figured out how to enlarge the algorithms (photos) it becomes even more grainy and is difficult to read. Would recommend that this e-book be republished with sharper images - very possible with today's sophisticated cameras. It would be good to offer those of us that have purchased this book updated copies of the algorithms and/or a new copy of this e-book, so it's more useful. I'll keep my paper copy handy (although bulky/heavy) because of the difficulty in reading these great tools.

This is a great resource for clinical situations. It has all the info needed to help identify and treat numerous disorders. It was recommended to me by an experienced FNP who uses it as a resource for those less commonly seen disorders. Well worth the money.

I really find this book useful in pda, but when I am at home. I rather read it off a book to save my eyes. This is more than enough comprehensive cover for my clinical phrase in medical school. It is very updated, brief, and straight to the point as compare to the big classic Harrision IM volumes. If you want more detail and have the lux and time to read more into each topic, then get the Harrision IM. Else, this is good enough for management.

I'm a medical student, and this book is awesome for studying at night. you can pick ten random subjects and basically learn everything you need to know in two concise pages. i wish it had pictures, but the book is so giant already i cant imagine how much heavier it would be with them. fully recommend it!

The 5 minute clinical consult ed. Frank J. Domino represents a rapid text of clinical medicine written in very concise style. Substantially it may be divide in two parts. In the first part the diagnosis and treatment is illustrated by an algorithmic approach. In the second part, which is very larger than the first one, every disease is illustrated by means of diagnosis, differential diagnosis,treatment, prognosis , references.This texbook of medicine is not addressed to the students that have to prepare an axamination during their university courses, rather to those physicians that during their clinical work have to consult , for ezample, a disease that they have studied just before of which it is necessary a rapid complete update. I am a phisician whose speciality is " internal medicine"
