She was just wonderful!
Dr. Book is excellent!
Everything was Ok, thank you
Dr. Book is wonderful. She tells it like it is and explains everything.
Dr. Book is exceptional. I was so satisfied with my care.
Dr Book is caring, patient, and most of all knowledgeable and professional!
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!
