"Books such as Laboratory Medicine in Psychiatry and Behavioral Science highlight the need for psychiatrists to remain attentive to the general medical well-being of their patients while attending to their psychological needs. For this reason, and the comprehensive coverage made available in the context of psychiatric practice, this book is highly recommended to all those involved in the care of patients who are receiving pharmaceutical therapy for their psychiatric conditions."-- "MedicalScienceBooks.com", "March 2012"

"This is the single most complete reference on laboratory tests and their role in psychiatry. It is easy to use, very concise, and complete in its entirety. Psychiatrists needs this book, as the assumption is often made that patients are "medically cleared" by the time they are working with psychiatrists, which leads to some complacency on the psychiatrists' part regarding important further laboratory tests. Further, research shows the unacceptably low rates of screening and monitoring for patients taking various psychotropic medications. Some areas of improvement for this book would include adding sections on pediatrics. I would also recommend separating neuroimaging tests and cardiac tests into their own sections instead of including them in the general laboratory tests section."-- "Aaron Plattner. M.D., Doody Enterprises, Inc.", "March 2012"

" "Laboratory Medicine in Psychiatry and Behavioral Science" is an invaluable resource for every practicing psychiatrist. Dr. Jacobson provides details for all major laboratory and other diagnostic tests relevant to Psychiatry, then summarizes their role in major medical disorders, and finally reviews what laboratory measures are indicated for each psychotropic drug. In bringing together all of this information from so many diverse cited references, this book has already saved me many hours."-- "James L. Levenson, M.D., Professor of Psychiatry, Medicine, and Surgery, Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine"
