REVIEWER’S EXPERT OPINION
Vincent F Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences)
Description: As the title suggests, this book takes a symptom-based approach to common disorders one may encounter in a primary care practice.
Purpose of Diagnosis A Symptom Based Approach: It is intended to help develop a differential diagnosis based upon the presenting symptom. As one rarely guesses the correct diagnosis on the first round, this approach allows clinicians to consider a few common diagnoses concurrently, so ancillary testing may be requested yielding the correct diagnosis.
Audience of Diagnosis A Symptom Based Approach: The author appears to be writing for clinicians in the Indian medical system, focusing on the particular conditions and customs of the area. The book is very basic, but one with high utility.
Features of Diagnosis A Symptom Based Approach: Each chapter has an opening synopsis, followed by a list of the differential diagnoses and the appropriate diagnostic investigation, and ends with red flags and references.
Assessment of Diagnosis A Symptom Based Approach: The book is quite well done, delivering the information adequately without figures, photos, and algorithms while providing appropriate references. This is a very helpful and utilitarian book for office-based clinicians.
Diagnosis: A Symptom-based Approach in Internal Medicine is a concise guide to diagnosis various conditions, based on the symptoms presented. The book discusses in detail, both common and uncommon symptoms and their interpretation, to help practitioners achieve an accurate diagnosis and prescribe appropriate treatment. With the help of illustrations and images, the text also guides students and clinicians through possible red flags , helping them not to mis-diagnose certain disorders.
