Clinical Allergy: Diagnosis and Management is a volume from the Current Clinical Practice series (Springer). Series Editor Neil Skolnik correctly points out in his introduction that allergic disorders are among the most common seen by primary care physicians, that the science of allergy has greatly increased in scope over the past 2 decades, and that studies show that primary care physicians indicate a need for further allergy education.
To fulfill this educational need, author Gerald Volcheck indicates his goal to provide “clinically applicable information” to “unravel the mystery of allergy,” thus providing a “logical framework” for diagnosis and treatment. The primary audience for this work is described by the author as primary care physicians, medical students, residents, and junior allergy fellows.
