Reviews

“This book fulfills its purpose of providing a deeper understanding of the cardiovascular manifestations of hypertension in diverse patient populations using a very simple, practical, and straightforward approach. … This book will help patients, physicians, and ancillary staff to articulate their understanding of hypertension and cardiovascular diseases, delineate their knowledge and skills, and become well versed in decision making.” (Fahad Javed, Doody's Book Reviews, April, 2017)
