Reviews

“The audience is all physicians caring for melanoma patients or patients who are at high risk for developing melanoma. … The material is well written and presented in a clear manner. The summary of appropriate studies is concise without being burdensome. … This is a valuable reference for digesting a huge amount of information on an important topic.” (Patricia Wong, Doody's Book Reviews, November 6, 2020)
