Quotes, Reviews or Testimonials

"Every practitioner who cares for children should be familiar with the AAP's clinical practice guidelines and policies in order to provide appropriate care for their patients. This easy-to-use resource provides immediate access to a compendium of all of the current, evidence-based recommendations put forth by the most authoritative organization in pediatrics. It should be in the library of every practitioner and medical educator."

-- Maria Alkureishi, MD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine) Doody's Review - previous edition

"This title, although massive as necessitated by its subject, is a useful and nearly vital resource for any modern pediatrician who wishes to practice evidence-based medicine. The current edition, updated from the prior year, contains the most up-to-date recommendations for modern pediatric practice."

-- Andrew` Bernstein, MD (North Suburban Pediatrics) - Doody's Review previous edition

"With their easy access to all current pediatric practice guidelines and policies, this manual is an indispensable addition to any pediatric library. Pediatric practitioners and managers at all levels will refer often to the manual to ensure that their practice keeps up to date with the latest patient care recommendations from AAP."

-- Lois Gesn, MD (Ochsner Health Center - Baton Rouge) Doody's Review - previous edition


The audience includes anyone caring for children. This obviously includes practicing pediatric providers, both in the outpatient and inpatient setting, as well as physicians and midlevel providers. Early learners, such as medical and nurse practitioner students, and residents will find this resource extremely useful as well, and it should be the cornerstone for teaching and practicing medicine in pediatrics.
