Great book to get a handle on rheumatic disease. As a primary care provider (NP) working with uninsured/underserved patients, I see many of these conditions come through our doors. Unfortunately, I needed to obtain a very good understanding of these diseases very quickly. I found this book after spending sometime “shadowing” a rheumatologist and he suggested this book. Best recommendation to date.

The resident’s rheum go to book. Excellent coverage of topics. Very nice to have the digital copy, so I can read during downtime and not lug the book around with me.

Remains the source. Adds context, depth, perspective to any joint disease. And make no mistake about the need for its own province as a bonanza fine specialty. All but defines the scope of the specialty for those of us on the front lines.
