Editorial Reviews

"The purpose is to address the natural history and pathophysiology of HCV as well as the diagnosis and management of patients with this disease. The book is successful in meeting these worthy objectives. . The information is relevant and informative for both new GI fellows and established practitioners. The book also would be useful for internists, residents, and fellows. . This is a useful book for both a detailed read and a quick reference on hepatitis C." (Nicole E. Pisapia, Doody's Book Reviews, August, 2016)
