About this book

This handbook provides a quick, portable, algorithm-based guide to diagnosis and management of common problems seen in adult patients. Written by experienced primary care practitioners, the book emphasizes efficient decision making necessary in the fast-paced realm of the medical office. It covers general considerations such as the physical examination, care of special populations, and pain management and palliative care. It also focuses on common symptoms and disorders by system, including endocrine, respiratory, cardiac, orthopedic, neurologic, genitourinary, and gynecologic. For each disorder, symptoms, red flags, algorithms for differential diagnosis, related symptoms and findings, laboratory workup, treatment guidelines, and clinical pearls are discussed. Handbook of Outpatient Medicine is a valuable resource for primary care physicians, residents, and medical students.

Reviews

“This is an excellent refresher for all those currently engaged in the outpatient practice of medicine and a tremendous foundation work for those just beginning their practice. … It is an easy read despite the depth of detail, and the tables add greatly to comparing and contrasting of the various concepts.” (Vincent F. Carr, Doody's Book Reviews, May, 2018)
