MedicalScienceBooks.com Medical Book Review:

     Treatment of Skin Disease: Comprehensive Therapeutic Strategies, 3rd Edition is a remarkably inclusive text.  The book is extremely well organized with numerous high quality full color photographs depicting the various dermatological pathologies discussed.    Online access is also included with each book.

    Once you receive your book, simply use the unique activation code in the front cover to access the full, searchable text online at expertconsult.com.

     One possible criticism of the text is a lack of photographic examples of pathological variants.  Due to time constraints in the clinical environment, many readers may prefer to consult a reference with more "atlas-like" photography along with treatment guidelines.  However, due to superb organization and clear examples of representative conditions, practicing clinicians will have access to the information they need on a day to day basis.
