User Reviews For Harrison’s Gastroenterology and Hepatology PDF
- overall, an excellent gastroenterology book………however,too much biochemistry, for me……the treatments went in to too much detail, like in the hepatitis section, which I found overwhelming for a primary care doc; seemed to be perfect, however, for a gastroenterologist…..highly recommend the book…..should be enjoyed by the primary care doc…….ken Humphrey, md, abem, abfp…….
- Harrison’s is the gold standard but too heavy to carry around.
The individual paperback books for each specialty make it easy to study.
Great Book must have and Read
