LYN D. WEISS, MD, CHAIR OF PHYSICAL MEDICINE AND REHABILITATION AT NUMC AUTHORS “OXFORD AMERICAN HANDBOOK IN PHYSICAL MEDICINE AND REHABILITATION”

East Meadow, NY … Lyn D. Weiss, MD, chair of physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R) department at the Nassau University Medical Center has authored her fifth medical book, this latest one entitled “The Oxford American Handbook in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation”, in collaboration with Jay Weiss, a sessional attending physiatrist and Dr. Thomas Pobre, also a physiatrist in the department of PM&R.

The Oxford American Handbooks are flexi-covered pocket clinical books, providing practical guidance in quick reference, note form. Titles cover major medical specialties or cross-specialty topics and are aimed at students, residents, internists, family physicians, and practicing physicians within specific disciplines. Their reputation is built on including the best clinical information, complemented by hints, tips, and advice from the authors. Each one is carefully reviewed by senior subject experts, residents, and students to ensure that content reflects the reality of day-to-day medical practice.

This book is aimed primarily at medical students rotating through PM&R, and PM&R residents. It is meant to be available for quick reference on a topic when in the hospital or clinic. It is also intended for physiatrists, who may encounter conditions or topics that they rarely see or haven’t seen in years.

“The authors have been privileged to work for and with many talented individuals, mostly the department of PM&R and department of orthopedics as well as several from outside institutions. We are extremely grateful to have the support and encouragement of our Medical Director and our CEO at the Nassau University Medical Center. Steve Walerstein, MD, and Arthur Gianelli, CEO, are role models in the practice of medicine and administration. They always put patient care first and strive to provide the best care possible. We have given better care to our patients because of them, and for that we are appreciative,” Weiss stated.
