Editorial Reviews

"The Pocket Pediatrician is well-written, and useful for housestaff in a pediatric-tertiary-care setting. It is more extensive than other pediatric handbooks, and as such fits into large pockets only, but the additional detail makes it a valuable companion." Astrid Guttmann, M.D., Annals CRMCC
