Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book summarizes the current knowledge about the diagnosis, consequences, and treatment of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). … It is designed mostly for practicing adult and pediatric endocrinologists and gynecologists. … this book also could be of interest to bariatric medicine providers who may often encounter patients with PCOS. … Illustrations are plentiful, of good quality, and aid comprehension. … It is a worthwhile publication, since information on PCOS is fragmentary and incomplete and there are not many recent extensive reviews of the topic.” (Silvana Pannain, Doody’s Review Service)
