"This book is an outstanding addition to the Medical-Psychiatric Practice Series
. . . . This book will be valuable to primary care physicians and psychiatrists. Although some of the topics are complex, the chapters are not the usual didactic presentations; instead, they contain many charts and illustrative case histories that enhance the already significant clinical value of the text."—Psychiatric Times
"As with the previous volumes, this third volume of Medical Psychiatric Practice by Stoudemire and Fogel is a treasure not only for psychiatrists but also for general practitioners who desire to integrate their medical knowledge with their psychiatric understanding of medical illness and want to view the patient as a ‘whole.’ It is immensely readable, practical, and well referenced, indeed, a reflection of the future in psychiatry."—General Hospital Psychiatry
