For a practicing primary care physician, a clear and concise reference is essential for fast consultation. When a patient is in the examining room, there is not much time to search standard textbooks, so information has to be quickly located and to the point. Ferri's Clinical Advisor promises just that, “with significant differences from existing texts.”
Contributors include 120 eminent physicians, mostly from New England. The editor, Dr Ferri, clinical professor at Brown Medical School, has himself written a substantial part of the text.
