Reviews:

"Thyroid disease is a common condition that can often be elusive to diagnose, treat, and, most importantly, understand. Now the health care provider, student, and patient have a quick, succinct, and useful book that answers common questions in the management of thyroid disease. As an educator and endocrinologist myself, I plan to use Dr. Burch's book in teaching thyroid disease to our medical residents and students. Kudos on a wonderful addition to thyroid disease management and education!"

Diana B. McNeill, MD, FACP, Professor of Medicine, Vice Chair Education, Department of Medicine, Director, Duke Internal Medicine Residency Program, Durham,NC
 
"With the staggering volume of thyroid information and misinformation available on the Internet, I can, with peace of mind, recommend this book to any of my patients. The analogies used by Dr. Burch to describe thyroid physiology and pathophysiology are illuminating. All the advice is sound and reasonable. The text is easily comprehensible and complete, reflecting the clarity of Dr. Burch's wisdom from his vast clinical experience. This is exactly what folks interested in the thyroid need to know."

John C. Parker, MD, Endocrinologist, New Hanover Medical Clinic, Wilmington, NC
