Tried and true methods are described in step-by-step detail, and include clinical pearls, vignettes, practical clinical experiences, personal history, explanations of the physiologic significance of findings, and extensive discussions of evidence-based medicine. Jane Orient MD.

Now in its revised and updated Second Edition, Sapira's Art & Science of Bedside Diagnosis teaches the artful science of the clinical examination. An emphasis is placed on the physical examination, which when skillfully carried out can lead to an accurate diagnosis more quickly and less expensively than relying on technology alone.Major changes to this edition include extensive revisions to the musculoskeletal examination and the extremities and new photographs. More information about sensitivity and specificity of particular findings is included.
I have to say this book is by far my favorite medical book. I wish all my attendings and co-residents read this book. It is a good book that encourage us to use the high touch side of medicine, while technology is still important for diagnosis. We need this kind of books to keep trainees focused on the patient, rather than on the data or images in the computers. Physical exam is often limited and vague, even more so in the hands of the inexperienced. But the authors of this book give us some really good advice. It is truly humbling to read this book but I feel also very happy when I read this book because I love physical exam and always wanted to have a good teacher. When I get discouraged and stressed out, I read this book to recharge.
I will be going into a strong general medicine residency program. I have heard good things about this book, and decided to buy it in the hopes that it will strengthen my physical diagnosis skills. I have gone through 5 chapters and it is an amazing text! And so much more than I expected. Some things in life are extremely difficulty to achieve, such as knowing how to pass down your wisdom. This book is the best example of how the best teachers pass down their knowledge. Get ready for a lot of fun and a glimpse at the truth in medicine!
This is an interesting book. It contains a lot of commentary that reflects the philosophy of the editor, Dr. Orient, not all of which is supported by research. Yet, I find it fascinating. She gives insight to the nuances of patient assessment that are, if not unique, known to older practitioners who did not have the technical devices that we rely upon today. Before the era of CT scans, MRI, and bedside Ultrasonography, physicians and other caregivers had to rely upon their senses and skills at eliciting history and their skills at physical examinations without the aid of imagery. She relates some good things. As a teacher who works with paramedics I found a lot of things to like a pass along to my students in this book. It's not one of the fundamental list of books that I would recommend for Paramedics, but if one has the money and interest, it is an interesting book.
Indeed one has to be young to start such a voluminous book, but for every student beginning doctor I would HIGHLY recommend spending time on such an important work , a once in a century book!
But even for an experienced doctor in his "later" years this book may be a big pleasure and useful instrument.
Physical diagnosis was taught in my time in Holland in a reasonable practical way [the seventies] but afterwards it has been hard to find any book which would give practical relevant,clear information or it was burdened with extensive "useless" descriptions of heart sounds and such which nobody anyhow could distinguish[in a Primer of medicine M.H Papperworth describes this phenomena in a way cardiologists might not want to read about]
Other good books I came across are:
Rapid access guide by Donald W. Novey [not available anymore?],very short and practical! and recently : Atlas of adult physical diagnosis[Dale Berg and Katherine Worzala also an exception in this field,extremely clear and easier to handle then Sapira.
One never has to regret buying a good book in this field as -like homeopathy- it does not looses its value , whereas a new Harrison or so maybe a waste of money .............. a few years later one can spend money again.
I have an enormous personal medical library, and this is hands down the best book I own. It is like making rounds with the most interesting, learned, and studious clinician you have ever met -- though I suspect many of us have never really met anyone of Sapira's polymathic virtuosity. The book is intelligent, clear, scientific, and fun. It doesn't read like a textbook -- it reads like a one-on-one seminar with a wise mentor; one who has "seen it all" and knows how to teach. Read this book, and you will be a far better clinician for having done so. Don't read it for Boards or exams; read it for your edification. I am an experienced neurologist -- and learned several neurological "pearls" from this book.
"Though this be madness, yet there is a method in it"- this book is a unique book indeed, and people who aspire to have a deep conceptual and lasting understanding of clinical methods and diagnosis, should read it in their earlier clinical rotations of medical (School) years.
IF you are someone who wants a detailed reflection on clinical methods, this book is for you.
If you are someone who loves to know things in conceptual details? If yes, this book is for you.
This book is as much about the art as it is about the science of clinical methods and diagnosis.
It is not meant for those merely looking to simply get through an exam. It is for those who want to get an insight into what the art and science of medicine is all about.
This book belongs to the category of books like Harrison's, Cecil, Roberts and Hedges Clinical procedure in Emergency Medicine and Rosen's Emergency Medicine. An absolute classic and worthy of any medical professional's library.

PS: I communicated with editor and they are considering another edition of this book. That, however, is at least two-three years away.
I am a medical student who bought this book after a physician recommended it. I was using Bates, but I like this book MUCH better. It has good photos (I'm a visual learner), and it provides a comprehensive guide to physical diagnosis. Maybe I don't need all the information right now, but I feel like it will be a good resource for years to come.
Thorough book with detailed basic sciences knowledge assumed of the reader,more suitable for senior Medical students and residents.Not withstanding,great to see proponents of "Bedside Medicine" fighting back,if you will !
