Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This book is designed to aid primary care providers in meeting the healthcare needs of their female patients. . The audience is primary care physicians who have received minimal training in obstetric and gynecological issues but treat women and girls. It would also be useful for physicians who need a refresher or a good clinic reference or even for residents in a primary care rotation. . It is also a good refresher for those physicians who have been out of residency for a while." (Rita Duboyce, Doody's Review Service, June, 2008)
