This repertory does not take the place of exhaustive repertory like Kent’s or Boenninghausen’s repertory. For construction Dr. Phatak relied up on the following authors: Dr. Kent, Dr. Boger, Dr.Clarke .
Dr. S.R. Phatak came up with the idea of preparing and organizing the repertory in alphabetical order while teaching his fellow doctors. He thought the repertory should be concise, useful and handy in order to be able to referred immediately. It should lessen the doctor’s difficulty in searching a rubric.
Remedies for a particular rubric are reduced to a minimum through careful selection. No drug is given unless the author has used it in his own practice or there is strong justification for it being advised by authorities like Dr. Boger, Dr. Kent, Dr. Clarke etc.
· The headings mentals, generals, modalities, organs, and their sub-parts are all arranged according to their alphabetical order.
· All the physiological conditions such as appetite, aversions, desires, nausea, vomiting, thirst, fever, pulse etc. are also included in alphabetical order.
· Cross references are given wherever necessary.
· The author has garnered all useful modalities from different standard repertories and has included those in this book.
