This book is a must-have for primary care physicians who wish to keep up to date with the rapidly changing field of cardiology.

Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:

“This book outlines the basic concepts that a family physician should fully understand when caring for patients with the more common cardiac diagnoses. … This is primarily geared to primary care providers, whether family medicine physicians, physician assistants, or nurse practitioners. It is also a very good summary for students of medicine as it translates the current literature into usable practice concepts. … Overall, this is a helpful summary of what is important in caring for patients with heart problems.” (Vincent F. Carr, Doody’s Book Reviews, March, 2012)
