"Rupesh Dharia, MD - primary care physician According to Dr. Dharia, lots of Gl-type problems are dealt with by primary-care physicians in the office without specialist referrals. "If I needed a book to refer to for a gastrointestinal problem, this would be a good book to turn to. The content is all there without being too complex for an internist to understand...If you're buying a Lange book you can be sure it has the information you're looking for." The book is overall concise and thorough enough for family practitioners, residents, and students. The top-to-bottom (mouth to rectum) organization is methodical and easy to follow. Although Dr. Dharia usually turns to Cecil's Essentials or a book like Harrison's when GI problems present in his patients, if he wanted something more "basic" and to the point he would consult CD&T in Gastroenterology because it contains medical facts and no pathophysiology (which is irrelevant to his daily practice). Suggestions for improvement include: brighter, more eye-catching cover color; 2nd color inside; and quick-reference tabs (as bleeds) by organ system.
