Editorial Review(s) 

"This is an excellent, short introductory handbook of pain management for trainees at any level. It includes the practical information that would otherwise stump trainees and would be hard to find in the pain textbooks. It is truly a pain clinic manual, since it covers nearly eveything a physician does on a daily basis in a clinic, including documentation, billing, and operating room procedures." - Doody's Reviews, December 2013
