Reviews

From the reviews:

“The purpose is to teach primary practitioners how to recognize and treat common skin diseases in the geriatric population. … This atlas provides a visual introduction to a myriad of conditions that primary care physicians and extenders will likely encounter in their practice with older patients. This is a reasonable starting place to become acquainted with the dermatological changes that occur on a cellular and immune level and how this contributes to skin diseases seen in the elderly.” (Patricia Wong, Doody’s Book Reviews, February, 2014)
