MEDIA REVIEWS
."..this disorder focused part of the book makes the book cohesive as a stand-alone publication because it ties the technical and clinical aspects of the testing procedures together. Overall, this text makes an important contribution to the gastroenterology literature. No other single text exists on the topic of this comprehensive list of GI testing modalities written with not only the physician, but nurses and technical staff in mind."

"I find this book a useful reference. The sheer breadth of topics covered is probably its greatest strength."
