From Amazon:”The Collins dictionary of medicine was given to me when I first became a medical secretary with no medical experience! This book helped me enormously with medical terminology and spellings but also detailed explanations of conditions etc. It is by far the best medical dictionary I have seen and I would recommend it to anyone.”About the Author:
