Five Stars “To the point resources on geriatric conditions/syndroms. Very easy to read/access the content you need…bulleted and formatted for quick reference. Helpful sections on evidence-based guidelines.”—Ben

Should be titled "GET THIS BOOK NOW!"“GREAT book for my new job...I've been an NP to college students and in urgent care, but this is the first time I've been a nurse practitioner for a geriatric house call practice and this book is perfect. I am really enjoying the format, the timely and research backed treatment protocols and the compassionate, well written style for advising anyone in the business of taking care of old folks! This is a must-read for all medical people but is especially suited to a Geriatric NP or Family Practice NP who see elderly patients regularly.”—Amazon Reviewer
