Reviews & endorsements

"Helps medical students understand key neurologic pathology that they will come across on the medical ward, and residents with solutions to these problems. In addition, it is a study aid for fellows and senior residents for the oral boards...a useful study resource and overview of common neurologic problems that arise in patients on the rehabilitation floor. Not intended as an exhaustive resource, the book accomplishes its goal of capturing key common critical concepts."
