  • I use the Tarascon Primary Care iPhone App frequently and definitely recommend it to any physician, resident, or med student looking for a good quick-reference/memory-jogger.

  • Dr. Esherick has an amazing ability to organize up-to-date and evidence-based medical information for a wide range of topics in a powerfully succinct manner. All that you need to know in concise charts, lists, and tables. Very easy to navigate. The Primary Care Pocketbook App is a must have for a clinician in primary care.

  • I have used the Tarascon Primary Care Pocketbook for years and it held a spot in precious white coat pocket space. I am delighted to be able to free my pocket and carry it on my iPhone now. I love my iPhone and I have a lot of great medical apps, but this is one of the best!


  • This iPhone App version of the Tarascon Primary Care handbook is easy to use. Succinct descriptions of medical conditions at your fingertips. It is a great support tool when you are looking for a quick reference on a topic while "on the fly".

  • The App is a decent representation of the Primary Care Pocketbook.  I find the index to be especially thorough.  I think with all these pseudo medical references in the App Store, you can't beat the reputation of the Tarascon series.  I don't mind paying more for information that I trust to treat my patients.

  • The Tarascon Primary Care App is so easy to use and well organized!  This is perfect for both outpatient and inpatient medicine.  This app is a bargain compared to other similar apps and I haven't had any problems with bugs or crashes.  All medical professionals should highly consider this app.


  • Well-organized, thorough, quickly accessible reference.  Ideal for both inpatient and outpatient care.  Impressive search tool.  Tarascon Primary Care quickly became a "go-to" app for me when other apps go unused.
