Reviews

“This relatively short, pocket-friendly book has well-delineated chapters that are easy to read with tables, subsections, and key points on every page…This is a unique book in the field and provides a resource for problems that gastroenterologists will encounter, often unexpectedly.  Most gastroenterologists, very familiar with the diseases, will still benefit from the pregnancy-specific data and recommendations.  The GI and liver disease sections cover a vast array of liver diseases in a succinct fashion, emphasizing the pregnancy-specific aspects…Bottom Line: Pick up a copy of this small but very helpful handbook if you are a clinician or trainee and use it for quick reference when you see a patient with GI liver disease who is planning to become or is pregnant.”
