‘I love this text and I refer to it often throughout NP school but I wish it had more information on documenting abnormal physical exam findings for multiple diagnoses. Please make a book that goes over common abnormal physical exam findings and how to document for multiple diagnoses! Thanks!’
‘This book is so helpful! It’s a good introduction to common illnesses and i especially love that it has a lot of pictures of the actual illness such as the different kinds of edema, and circulatory problems. It really helps you have an image in your head of what it is and not just a written explanation. It is very well written and put together. It helped me understand how certain problems develop and how to approach a patient in every situation and what to ask in order to get a complete history and get the most out of my time with my patients. It is a bit pricey, but it is totally worth it! It’s one of those books that I will not sell and keep for my own reference.’
