4-STARS from Doody's Review
"This book is extremely well done. The material is effectively presented with abundant color illustrations. Important information and suggestions for primary care physicians are spot on, such as obtaining a standing radiograph for a patient suspected of having knee arthritis, among others. The advice to avoid excessive ordering of MRI studies by those not planning to implement the results in their treatment plan is a good strategy and a money saver. I highly recommend this book to all primary care physicians caring for patients with musculoskeletal disorders. It is currently the best work on this topic available." - Edward Abraham, MD, University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine, on behalf of Doody's Review Service
