5.0 out of 5 stars Best Medical Dictionary. Oct. 3 2000
By Rheumor - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I was 'raised' on Stedman's, the usual medical dictionary at my Med School. When I recently bought a Taber's as a gift for a future colleague, I was surprised at the easier 'navigation' possible with Taber's (the tabs are excellent) and I was impressed with the quality & quantity of the illustrations. I believe this is the best choice for both health care providers and consumers.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best medical dictionary for practical use March 1 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I continue to use this book, after 5 years in private practice. It is fast, concise and still amazes me at its depth.
I've just recommended it to my brother who is begining his EMT training.
