He was great. We were very worried when we got there and he was able to alleviate our concerns. He made sure we understood her diagnosis and the implications. He told us why he isn't worried and why we don't need to take action. And he told us what to watch for in the future. We left there very happy and relieved, and with a plan.

Not only did Dr. Bookland take the time to explain everything, but he also pauses to listen and give you the chance to ask questions. I never felt rushed during the appointment and appreciate his thoroughness. After the appointment, I sent Dr. Bookland an inquiry via MyChart and he was quick to respond with an answer. Really appreciated!
