Dr.book gets a 5 star But the front receptionist. She gets a ZERO!! She is rude & worse attitude. 1st, we come through the door, no greeting what so ever she says With an attitude,go & sit down(wow really?) Now I'm getting a little upset. 2nd, my mom goes up to the front where there is a "complimentary " candies for clients. she gets a few for my son(2yearold), she yells out "take 2 only if you gunna eat It". Now I'm mad, I yell back "we Are". Go Get another job lady.Left a bad taste in my mouth

Excellent surgeon ??!
My visit to Dr. Book was rushed. Due to size of my thyroid nodule, he never even checked me out, but immediately gave me one option which was surgery. I've seen many testimonies that unless it was cancerous (mine wasn't) there are several things that can be tried before surgery. On my surgery date I asked questions about my disease, Hashimoto's, and his response was, If I remove your entire thyroid it won't be an issue. Since surgery, I've had two appts.he wasn't present for either. Horrible!

Dr. Book is AWESOME! I have complex sinuses that require regular care. Dr. Book's care has made my sinuses healthier than they've been in yours. He is great at explaining at diagnosis, treatment plan, etc. in a very pleasant manner! I HIGHLY recommend him to anyone needing an ENT! He's the best in town!
