DOODY’s 5 STAR - Contemporary Diagnosis and Management of Bipolar Disorders

“Evidence-based handbook usefully delves into the variety of anxiety disorders...the sections on clinical consequences of misdiagnosis and… monotherapy versus combination therapy are quite good. Treatment issues…are also well done.”
