Review quote

"...stands alone as a practical, readable resource for the nonspecialist physician caring for patients with allergies." -JAMA "...highly detailed and practical guide for all physicians, but particularly for primary care." -Doody's Book Review, Weighted Numerical Score:87 - 3 Stars "...a gold standard reference of special value in every practice. It is ideal reading form primary care physicians, family physicians, general practitioners, internists and pediatricians." (Journal of Investigational Allergology and Clinical Immunology)"Comprehensive and highly practical, this new edition offers an up-to-date, user-friendly approach to the diagnosis and treatment of allergy. The major emphasis is on common allergic diseases and the agents used to control them. To keep the approach fresh, some new authors were solicited, while returning authors were asked to write on different topics. Chapters have been added on antihistamines, antileukotrienes, and recurrent respiratory tract infections in children." (Consultant)show more
