""The evidence-based, diverse, and gender-specific content makes this a good reference book for medical providers caring for female-identifying patients..."
"As a women's health provider for more than a decade, actively practicing and teaching, I plan to add this book to my clinical resources for women."

-- Rachel Simmons, PhD (c), DNP, WHNP, ANP, IBCLC (Community Health Centers, Inc.) Doody's Review

"This textbook provides the busy clinician with a 'one stop' comprehensive guide to women's health that includes essential components of the history, diagnostic workup, treatment, and management guidelines for most common health issues and problems specific to providing gynecologic care to women. Clinicians will welcome the updated clinical content and additional resources and educational recommendations."

"The best guidelines book available. It is great for NPs of any specialty, as well as CNMs, PAs, and other health professionals caring for women. This book is concise and well organized, making it extremely easy to find information quickly. I have used numerous editions of this book for years and it is my number one recommendation for NP students and experienced NPs looking for the best guidelines book on the market. To care for women a practitioner must understand the diversity and complexity of their lives and how these impact their wellness; this book does a remarkable job reflecting this."
