Review:

This title is a nice complement to other recently published consumer health volumes that specifically target librarians such as Michele Spatz's 'Answering Consumer Medical Health Questions: The Medical Library Association Guide for Reference Librarians' and 'The Medical Library Association Guide to Health Literacy at the Library' edited by Marge Kars, Lynda M. Baker, and Feleta L. Wilson.... a valuable addition to the consumer health collections of all types of libraries. --J Med Libr Assoc 97(4) October 2009

...beneficial to reference librarians directing patrons to accurate information. --ARBA, March 2009

A sweeping study of frequently asked medical questions. Recommended for public libraries. --Library Journal, 12/19/2008
