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.
