Like all the books in the Davis's Notes Series, DermNotes is a handy
reference filled with clinically pertinent information that is small
enoughto fit inside a pocket. The book is packed with dermatological
photos and loaded with content, covering the most common and serious
skin diseases. Easy to use thumb tabs help users find information
quickly and therefore provide confident care. DermNotes offers succinct
and critical information about dermatology disorders, and their
diagnosis and treatment, at your fingertips.
Summary: Great for rotations!
I am a PA student and bought this book for my surgical/clinical derm
rotation. This book is an excellent review of the most commonly
encountered problems. There is a section which specifically covers
lasers and what they are used for and at what strengths, which was very
helpful. I kept this in my pocket for the whole rotation and was
constantly looking at it in my free time. I eventually showed my
preceptor and she was so impressed with it she eventually bought one
too! A definite necessity for the clinical setting!!!
Summary: Pretty good, but
This is a small pocket guide with excellent text information. The only
reservation I have is about the pictures. The quality of the images is
a little low.
Summary: Very helpful, easy to use!!
Derm notes is a concise reference that quickly defines each condition,
gives etiology and prevalence within patient populations, and presents
treatment options. It also contains images that are excellent for
recognizing conditions as they present in the clinic.
I am currently on my Pediatrics rotation and have referred to Derm
Notes frequently to confirm diagnoses and consult treament plans. It
can't replace a large derm atlas, but that isn't its function. This
book does what it's designed to do, provide a fast and accurate
clinical reference for students and providers.
This book can take a lot of abuse. The plastic pages are tear-proof and
can be written on and wiped off. Mine has seen heavy use without a mark
or rip to show for it. This book is money well-spent.
Summary: A Great Resource
This is a great pocketbook for anyone who is learning dermatology. Not
only is it full of helpful visuals, but it is concise, small, and very
Summary: Handy Dermatology Companion
This is an excellent dermatology companion to be brought along in your
lab coat when you need some clinical information. The information is
concise and yet relevant and has important new and updated information.
I would strongly recommend it to residents and medical students doing
