In this era when doctors are  ever busier—and harder to reach with questions—patients are turning to other sources for answers about the problems they face. But it is difficult to know where to turn to find the most reliable and up-to-date information on a specific health condition, and evaluating the vast number of sources available can take countless hours and be quite costly. The When Your Doctor Says series from KWS Publishers offers the latest in research in affordable paperback editions, each volume dedicated to a single medical condition.
