We looked into the health care systems in the Charleston area, and we inquired of friends about the doctors they now used and liked. Over and over, we heard just amazing praises about Dr. Michael Book.… See more

from Marian Dee in SC January 18, 2024 for Michael R. Book, MD

I called Dr Michael Book at 6 45 in the morning and he talked to my husband and said do not let her drive you call 911. He also called MUSC and told them we were on our way which made everything so much easier for us when we… See more

from Katherine in SC January 18, 2024 for Michael R. Book, MD

Had an issue that was not resolved elsewhere. I called my PCP, Dr. Michael Book and he managed to get me an appointment with specialist very quickly. The health issue is being resolved. Good follow up from his office as well.

from Marsha in SC March 21, 2023 for Michael R. Book, MD

Dr Michael Book has taken care of my husband and me for over a decade. While there are many accolades I could expound on, Dr Book’s attribute that best defines him is that he is never satisfied.. Whether it is lowering my husband’s cholesterol, detecting reasons behind my osteoporosis or constantly monitoring the opportunities for new drugs, Dr Book is proactive. He looks at all alternatives… See more
