Format: Hardcover
this book is essential for any primary care provider.

I used it straight out of residency to guide me thru performing procedures in practice that I'd never or seldom done before.

The text and diagrams are so clear, and with very practical information, that doing these procedures was easy and complication-free.

It''s also great bc it gives useful stuff like sample consent forms, sample hx forms, and a concise listing of contraindications and potential complications, not to mention specific billing / coding information.

this new edition is more comprehensive than ever, and covers just about any minor (or major) procedure you would ever consider performing as a family medicine physician.

I refer to it on a regular basis in my clinic, and highly recommend it.

There are books about the "Art" of everything -surgery, intubation, birthing babies, and even motorcycle maintenance....I just had to throw that in. But, there are few books that give the "How-to-do-Something" in a clear, step by step, easy to read manner. This book gives the reader the basics; clinicial applications, correct technical procedures, and the consequences of doing a certain procedure.

Worth every penny for the procedure explanations. Every office should have one. Ours is massively dog-eared. This is a book you'll use.

i work in a community clinic and often will do procedures
to help save patients the cost of going to see a specialist and
it is always helpful to review procedures that you have not done in a while w/
this book.

This book is an excellent resource not only for MDs but for NPs or PAs. It's an easy read that thoroughly explains the procedures and provides pictures as well. One thing that makes this book a resource to have is the CPT/Billing codes & ICD-9 codes available at the end of the chapters. It provides handouts for patient education. Overall, its a well written book!

This has to be the best reference text I have on clinic procedures. It covers all the procedures needed in primary care (PAP, biopsies, toenail resection, etc). I can not recommend this book enough!!

This book is very helpful for office procedures, especially as a brief review/confirmation before each session. It is not the intetion of the book to make a compete novice to be competet in the procedure without hand-on training. It is also a great resource for the stock piling of the hardware and supplies for particular procedures.
