"The book is extremely useful for anybody who treats this blinding disease."
Professor Benjamin Miller, Israel
"I was delighted to open your “Diabetic Retinopathy for the Comprehensive Ophthalmologist,” to find a well-written, common-sense, informative book that should have immense value not only in the developed but particularly in the developing world. I plan to make this known and I am greatly appreciative of your making it available at www.drcobook.com."
Bruce E. Spivey, M.D., M.S., M.Ed. President, International Council of Ophthalmology
"in this text a way of writing that makes it more like a novel; it makes me want to read more and more. It is unlike medical textbooks where sometimes you reach a point where all of your brain ships sink!"
T. Issa, M.D., Jordan
