Review quote

This is an excellent resource for quick access to practical information on a wide spectrum of topics in nephrology...Overall, this second edition provides some needed updates, and continues to be one of the best resources for clinicians managing nephrology and hypertensive patients. * Doody's Notes * I would highly recommend this handy reference work - it will be useful for both experienced and less experienced colleagues. * Journal of the Norwegian Medical Association *
