Reviews

“This is a great book for medical students, pediatric providers and allergy/immunology fellows in training who want to learn from cases commonly encountered in a pediatric allergy clinic. … The unique format of this book series is quite clever and effective, setting it apart from most allergy books with dense facts that are often not easy to absorb.” (Patty Chi, Doody's Book Reviews, February 7, 2020)
