Review quote

From the Reviews of Previous Volumes "The very readable text permits clear comprehension of the exquisite core of information that is being presented... This volume does provide the opportunity for a focused update in each of many different areas of endocrinology." -CLAUDE L HUGHES, JR, DUKE UNIVERSITY MEDICAL CENTER, DURHAM, NORTH CAROLINA, IN ADOLESCENT AND PEDIATRIC GYNECOLOGY
