Review quote

-Clinical Examination: A Systematic Guide to Physical Diagnosis- contains everything a clinician needs to know about medical case-studies. The practical emphases of this book spanned across physiology and anatomy. It guides its reader on how best to observe and infer symptom signs. This book also included generous evaluation of both paediatric and geriatric symptoms. Midwifery students would be pleased with the commendable job it did on topics relating to obstetrics and neonatology.In conclusion, I would say that this book is a good diagnostic tool: a rich resource whose practical approach is supported by spectacular figures and photographs. Another quality guide for discerning medics!Medical Student, Zurich, Switzerland (review from more
