(Judith G. Abramson, Doody's Book Reviews, September, 2013)"Patient Surveillance After Cancer Treatment is a well-written, well-organized reference designed to speak to any practicing oncologist or primary care provider that follows cancer patients after treatment for curative intent. ... This is a great text and reference to any clinically practicing oncologist, primary care provider, survivorship program, and training physician of any level.
