Review“Best medical website on the internet. Perfect balance between brevity and detail.” – Dr. Lori Fewin, MD“Great reference. Easy to use. Up to date. Lots of patient education info. Wouldn’t change anything!” – Dr. Tanya Anim, MD

Up to date information and references. I got the Kindle version, rather than carry another 1600 page book around. However, it is hard to see the algorithm. It is slow to zoom in on them for reading, even on my Kindle for PC. I find this problem with all Kindle books that have diagrams.Arghh….took 10 minutes to search for some topics. I can look things up faster by an internet search or with paperback book. I was really hopeful this Kindle version would work.
Great resource book for NP students, love the algorithms. It has ICD 9 codes which helps but does not have ICD 10 codes which we will be switching to. It is still a good book to buy…I’m not buying for the ICD info and I can always look that up.
I have had a copy of the 5 Minute Clinical Consultant in my office library for the past 6 years. This book is a great addition to your clinical library. My area of practice is Internal Medicine. This book provides an alphabetical listing of common (and not as common) medical conditions. The subheadings under each condition provide ready information to review with your patients as well as community resources available to the patient for support and additional education. Highly recommended for the busy nurse.
