Behavioral Medicine: A Guide for Clinical Practiceby Mitchell D. Feldman
Synopses & Reviews
5 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!
"This is an extraordinarily thorough, useful book. It manages to summarize numerous topics, many of which are not a part of a traditional medical curriculum, in concise, relevant chapters. Physicians who do not understand the dynamics behind the doctor-patient relationship usually end up being poor doctors, and this book reviews the many behavioral issues that patients have that can affect this relationship. This is a very welcome addition to the medical education literature, and should be required reading for all practicing clinicians."--Doody's Review Service
