Summary

The Complete Patient History carefully teaches students the steps in history taking, the most important part of the clinical examination It fills a large void in the market. At present, there are many books available on performing the physical examination, but very few focus on the patient interview. Of these, none are organised by specific complaints, much how patients are encountered in a clinical or office setting.
