SUMMARY

Inspired by the enthusiastic response of psychiatrists and psychiatric residents to the recently published Primary Care Medicine for Psychiatrists: A Practitioner's Guide, the current volume is a concise, first-source guide to help specialists and other healthcare providers (especially psychiatrists, OB/GYN, and cardiologists) treat many general medicine problems. Each chapter has been reviewed by a specialist or doctor with particular interest in the area to assure the accuracy and timeliness of the material. Primary Care Medicine for Specialists and Non-Specialists is written in a concise, note-like format, and is designed to be used rather than read
