"This is a comprehensive review of everything caregivers need to facilitate the prevention and care of coronary heart disease in their patients."
-- Keith Hickey, MD, BS (Ochsner Clinic Foundation) Doody's Review
Written as a reference for dietitians, physicians, nurses, and physician assistants working with patients who are at risk for or present with CVD, this book is a valuable resource. It contains helpful information to manage patients in a primary care practice or subspecialty cardiology practice. In formulating this extensive, well-written book, the authors have more than met their objectives.
