.......... This book is the best book for 2nd and 3rd year students who are interacting with patients for the first time. the hardest part about taking a history is knowing what questions to ask. this book TELLS YOU. It's organized by system and by Chief complaint, each section includes a well thought out DDx, and a list of questions you should ask and what it mean if the patient says yes. it also tells you what physical signs to look for and what lab tests to order. Your presentations and H&Ps will through and you will understand why you ask all those silly questions in the first place.

The best feature of this book for me was that it offered examples of real questions to ask during the medical interview.

Presentation-specific chapter headings guide the reader through dozens of common chief complaints in an organized and methodical (system-based) manner. While initially intimidating, this text has earned its place in my medical bag. It has repeatedly proven just as useful in the clinic as in the classroom...just like any text should, but often fails to achieve. My only request is that the authors extend the portability of this text by providing reference flashcards or possibly a pocket-sized companion text.

The Patient History provides useful advice about how to figure out the differential diagnosis, and how to pick the correct diagnosis. The book includes a lot of tables which may include, for example, a column of symptoms and a column for the differential. If you prefer text to tables, this book may not be ideal: while it contains useful text, the tables include info not in the text. Keep in mind that this is not a pathophysiology textbook, and as such, the chapter on headaches won't include a lot of material about what causes headaches--just how to diagnose different types of headaches. Overall, this book is most useful for medical courses focusing on the diagnostic process.

Great for common complaints. Very quick read and concise. Also has flow charts at the end of every chapter which summarizes diagnostic decision points.

This is easily the most useful book I own for helping me sort out differential diagnoses based on patients' histories and symptoms. I am an adult NP student, 2nd year, and my current immersion in an internal medicine practice has proved that most diagnoses are indeed made on patient history. This book is extremely helpful!

I think this book is well written and very helpful for a young doctors and for International medical graduates.
It includes short relevant clinical review organized according to the chief complaints, sample questions to ask the patient and useful evidence-based algorithms. I like this book. Thanks a lot for the authors.
