4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!
"This 50th anniversary edition brings some nice upgrades to this comprehensive book on the majority of topics that primary care physicians encounter in their offices....This book has the tremendous benefit of being updated yearly and thus has stood the test of time for recognizing what is helpful and what works. It is well worth the price and a great addition to a primary care practitioner's library."--Doody's Review Service
