5 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!
"This is a well organized and comprehensive book that teaches a systematic approach to the establishment of a differential diagnosis by maximizing the information that can be collected and developed from a patient's history....This book is ideal for medical students, housestaff, and any clinicians dedicated to refining their skills in this area....Students will find this book very useful in guiding them through the common presenting symptoms that bring patients to medical attention. By systematically reviewing the information attained to formulate a differential diagnosis, taking into account prevalence data, associated causes, likelihood ratios of alarm symptoms and such, students will cultivate the discipline helping them to perform at the highest level."--Doody's Review Service
