I approach patients from the perspective of doctor as teacher- as originally defined 700 years ago. I see every patient encounter as an opportunity to teach them how to heal, to recover, and how to stay well in the future.

We have had many bad experiences with doctors here in Wisconsin since moving back here especially with the way doctors here in Wisconsin spend more time on lap top than face to face with patient but Dr Book was great spent most time in front of my wife and questions and used lap top as reference and not guide personally like that a lot
Everyone was very friendly and professional. I was very impressed start to finish!
The staff were professional and compassionate. Dr. Book was kind to my husband and treated him well, as did the PA. I only wish they could help him.
Everything was excellent!
This was our first visit to Froedtert and Dr. Book. Directions prior to the visit were excellent and made it very easy to be in the right place at the right time. Dr. Book was great. She handled our medical issue with concern and caring. Her dealing with my wife and giving us insight to the road ahead was very helpful. We look forward to receiving additional advice and counsel from Dr. Book in the future.
Excellent provider! The Best! Everyone we were in contact with today showed respect and did their jobs very well. For such a huge facility everything was spot on!
Very satisfied
Dr. Book was excellent! She spent a lot of time with me and provided much needed and appreciated information about my condition. She put my mind at ease. Her staff were all pleasant and efficient.
Very thorough, informative and professional
Other than the difficulty getting in the program and how far in advance you had to make the appointment, everything was great.
Dr. Book and her assistants are excellent.
My visit with Dr Book yesterday was one of the most pleasant interactions I've ever experienced with a provider. (Even though my diagnosis is not going to ever get better.) What a pleasant, caring, knowledgeable person she is! She explained everything to us so well and she patiently listened to what we had to say and the questions we had for her.
Dr Books was awesome as was her team. They listened to my concerns abd offered possible explanations and things to watch for in the future. They gave me peace of mind. That was worth a million dollars.
Dr. Book was absolutely great! She was thorough, provided visuals to aid in my understanding of the issues. Spent her time-did not feel rushed. Consulted other team members about my case. Completely satisfied.
All good
Excellent team work. Very professional but approachable and inspired confidence.
Attached Alzheimer's disease information is very helpful.
