Reviews

“This book contains a wealth of information on a subject that represents the most common dermatological condition seen in the typical podiatric physician's office. … The book is written appropriately for clinicians, and amongst its audience will be, of course, podiatrists and dermatologists. However, those in family practice, internal medicine, as well as residents in each of those areas, too will find this a good read.” (Martin C. Yorath, Doody's Book Reviews, July, 2017)
