The most RENOWNED AND TRUSTED INTRODUCTORY GUIDE to core topics in geriatric medicine and health care
A Doody's Core Title ESSENTIAL PURCHASE for 2011!
4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!
"This continues to be the leading U.S. introductory textbook in geriatric medicine. It is user friendly, well written and edited, and easy on the eyes. Not a single major concept is omitted. With some 400-plus pleasant pages, this can easily be read on a rotation in geriatric medicine. If I had a magic wand, I would wave it, and copies of this brilliant book would appear under the pillow of every hospitalist in the land. See if it doesn't resonate with you as well."--Doody's
Essentials of Clinical Geriatrics delivers a broad, well-written overview of all the important issues in geriatrics along with concise, practical guidance on the diagnosis and treatment of the diseases and disorders most commonly encountered in older patients.
