Review quote

The text is superbly organised, well written, and provides practical, specific treatment regimes. The case studies are cross referenced. Additionally, there is an appendix of diagnoses by page, and references following each chapter as well as a complete bibliography at the end of the book ... This book provides a systematic approach to the dizzy patient, clinical detailed histories in a question and answer format that is easy to read, and treatment options. It is useful to both specialists and non-specialists from the level of medical student to balance disorder specialists. I highly recommend this book. JNNPshow more
