"This is an important book for novice to experienced nurse
practitioners working in urologic settings. It covers the care of
adolescent through geriatric patients with specific sections for
each subspecialty. ... the book also would fulfill the quick
reference needs of general urologists, family/internal medicine
practitioners, and residents. ... This book will continue to be a
vital resource in the nurse practitioner's library. It's small,
portable package, combined with its thorough coverage of topics,
makes it incredibly user friendly." (Anne E. Calvaresi, Doody's
Book Reviews, July, 2016)
"The book serves as a guide for physician extenders in order to provide expert high quality cost effective care for adult urology patients. ... The book is user friendly and easy to navigate. `The Nurse Practitioner in Urology' will be a valued asset to all mid-level providers, physician extenders and specialists in the office based practice in urology. I suspect it will be a valued asset to busy state-of-the-art urological offices." (Jay B. Hollander, International Urology and Nephrology, Vol. 48, 2016)
