Reviews

“This book offers a ‘comprehensive, easy-to-follow, organized approach’ to diagnosis and management. … This is a high-quality offering in an area that very much needs clarity and logic. It will occupy a unique niche in the endocrinology literature and should find a home on the shelves of primary care practitioners as well as specialists.” (Carol Scott-Conner, Doody's Book Reviews, June, 2017)
