Fantastic procedure book March 27, 2011
by
This rented textbook I got from ecampus 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 textbook 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.
