DOODY’s 5 STAR - Contemporary Diagnosis and Management of Obesity and the Metabolic Syndrome, Fourth Edition

“The purpose appears to be to provide an analysis of the two topics and make associations that could assist in the diagnosis and management of both conditions. The two topics are a source of considerable discussion within the medical community, and this book provides one approach in summarizing the accepted theories at the present time.
The author is a well-respected professor of medicine”

“The audience includes all clinicians who have the opportunity to address either obesity and the metabolic syndrome with patients in their daily practice, but it is also written in a way that lay persons could easily understand.”
