Reviews

“Trainees with exposure to older patients dealing with kidney disease also would find this to be a helpful resource. In addition, palliative care specialists, geriatricians, and general internists would find this book to be useful. … Overall, it is an easy read and a needed resource in a field that is seeing rapid growth in this segment of the patient population. I plan to use this as an educational resource in my training program.” (Jon Webb, Doody's Book Reviews, February, 2017)
