This well-known text is the definitive reference work on the psychiatric care of patients with medical, neurological and surgical disorders. Physical illness often places a heavy mental burden on patients and this book is the most authoritative guide to dealing with their emotional, cognitive and behavioral problems. For internists and psychiatrists, especially those in consultation/liaison psychiatry, it is an invaluable resource.
