Reviews for Primary Care Medicine

5 STAR REVIEW from Doody's Review Service! Weighted Numerical Score: 100 - 5 Stars! This comprehensive reference covers the vast expanse of outpatient primary care. The editors have chosen their contributors well to pare down the information to the essentials . The tables are highly intuitive and well presented . There are numerous references for further reading. A full-text online version available through Inkling is very easy to access and navigate . The Inkling version works equally well on a laptop, IPad. or an Android smartphone. The different formats all are easy to read and allow changes in font size. The figures also translate extremely well in all the formats. The electronic version has a number of very nice features, such as accessing the references by tapping on the citation number, and has content not included in the print version. This is a valuable book that is equally easy to use in different formats -- print, IOS and Android. It is well organized and comprehensive without being overly detailed . It is very useful for practicing clinicians, focusing on pertinent facts yet making the references easy to find . - Vincent F Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP, Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, on behalf of Doody's Review Service
