    Great Geriatrics Text This was a required text in my PA program. While not many people in our class purchased it, or even read it if they did, I thoroughly enjoyed the text. The cases were helpful, and I feel like text was very helpful. This is definitely a book I will keep in my library, and likely re-read in the future. It was actually a pleasant read, and something that I think has helped me in clinical practice. It reminds you of the various issues that are unique to the elderly, and offers practical approaches to these patients. I would recommend this to any healthcare students or professionals.

    I would recommend this product. The book is educaitonal, it is not too large, and provides a great focus on how to apply general medical knowledge to the geriatric population. The book educates on how to individualize care and be aware of the aging process. There is also easy access to all the information with coded indexes available within the book. It has helped me with my education greatly.
