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.


Dr. Book is a specialist in cerebrovascular disorders including stroke, having co-founded the Froedtert & Medical College Stroke Program, and also in the dementias including Alzheimer’s Disease and vascular cognitive disorders. She has expanded her interests in stroke care quality to encompass patient safety and quality across Neurology.

I feel she was very thorough in her evaluation of my health issues. I think she went above tracking down some information about what I had been hospitalized for a few months prior to my visit with her. I would like to thank her for her soothing courtesy. It gave me confidence in her.

Medical record not available due to computer failure; physician did not read prepared survey document prior to start of appointment - was reading document while conducting exam; tech was not very attentive telling us to follow her to exam room while she was standing behind us; found hallway to exam room very congested and chaotic (lack of confidentiality; physician and tech were not adequately willing to asset patient find bathroom when patient experienced urgent need to use bathroom (patient has significant cognitive decline); physician's final rapport did not appear to be proof read containing many types/misspelling and unclear sentence fragments. In general this experience was NOT up to the standard that we have encounter in other areas of Froadtert & Medical college of Wisconsin.
