“Dr. Esherick’s procedure book is an extremely valuable tool for interns new to the wards or more seasoned providers who just what a quick review prior to performing a procedure they may not have done in a while. It provides a clear and concise review of almost any procedure you may have to do in the course of taking care of patients.”

“Dr. Esherick's textbooks are an incredibly helpful guide for the busy family physician.  He organizes an incredibly wide scope of knowledge into clear and helpful bullets that can be quickly reviewed between patients.  Information is up-to-date and evidence-based.  I highly recommend his texts for the residents I supervise and to any provider involved in primary care.”
