From the moment I entered the office, I was greeted and the staff introduced themselves. I was nervous about having the basal cell removed from my ear but my anxiety was relieved by the team that explained everything to me. Dr. Book was precise and his expertise in this field was was evident. They were working together like a well-oiled machine. I highly recommend this group. Thank you all for caring for me and the follow up phone call the next morning..

I am so disgusted with Dr book and staff!!!! Vey unprofessional and not informative about pre or post treatment!! I ended up in the ER with abnormal swelling to my face after he treated my cyst on my forehead, which was never told could happen or that it was normal. And to add to the chaos my results were told by a unsympathetic receptionist, not even the doctor himself!!! Do not go to his practice, heed my warning !!

I can"t believe this doctor has 5 stars! He scarred my face when removing a cyst and was extremely rude. I don"t usually rate any doctor but I thought people should know about this doctor.

I have seen Dr. Book for over 5 years for 5 procedures for basal skin cell cancer removal. Two of my surgeries involved 2 tattoos , Dr. book was very respectful of my body art and very patient with his closure of area that required no touch up work. I am very greatful for Dr. Book and his skills for diagnosing and removing the skin cancer, the wait time between the removal and diagnosis is long but one must realize that patience means the medical issue will be removed.
