    Congratulations for Your 200 anniversary. Keep the good medicine and the good teaching and the good publishing! There has not been a better publication in our modern times. It is a crystal clear reflection of the excellence that American Medicine has reached. I can not know a better way to stay up to date! You continue to be a must for every physician who does not want to get illiterate as medical knowledge evolves. You can view it the other way: It is the best publication to keep up to date in medical knowledge, in every field of medicine.
    Thank You! Sincerely, Ricardo Guraieb. Pediatrician. Mexico.
