This app is an electronic version of the excellent book "Quick Reference Atlas of Dermatology" by Dr Ian Williams & Dr Vivienne Ankrett which won a Royal College of GPs award for education in dermatology. It is one of my favourite books. It has pride of place on my shelf and is within easy reach at all times. Finding what you want is easy and the short notes are comprehensive and useful. I also find it useful to show patients the pictures so that they feel confident I have the right diagnosis.
A quote from Amazon about the book - "This is the ultimate in easy to read note format book with excellant illustrations. RCGP award winner - well deserved. Great for GPs, hospital Drs , nurses and students."
