Reviews

“The audience includes geriatric providers in both primary care and specialty care. The content is such that the book may be used as a reference by attending physicians as well as for teaching students, residents and fellows. … I find this book of high quality and, while comprehensive, it is also practical enough that it can be used in day‐to‐day practice.” (Ronna D. New, Doody’s Book Reviews, February 21, 2020)
