What others say about Dr. Books:
RELATED HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONALS
1. John Gedye. M.D.
I first heard Dr. Books speak on head injuries and learning differences in Texas, and since then have collaborated with her on research project preparations. Her breadth of knowledge spanning several fields, and how she brings it together these facets is quite intriguing; and a challenge to put into a restrictive research model. It has been a pleasure to help graph and chart her findings.
I have personally witnessed her work on my colleagues and during a particularly stressful time in my life, believe she prevented me from a heart attack. After that session, my life took an interesting turn, and my most real and honest work took form.
2. Dennis Reidmiller, D. D. S. (Orthodontist)
“Over the past years, my relationship with Dr. Phyllis Books has been as a patient myself and as a referring doctor to her practice. As a patient, I can attest first hand to her ability and to the success of her treatment.
I have referred multiple patients to her, primarily for their TMJ dysfunction, which I found was related to a dyslexia problem and also sacral/spinal problems or misalignment.
I have been very impressed with the improvements that my patients have undergone with her care. Her treatment modality has been a tremendous help to my patients with their TMJ, making my job considerably easier in making their dental corrections.”
3. Pam Bell, Ed.D., LPC, CBT, EEG Biofeedback, Cert. Provider
Santa Fe, N.M.
I first heard about Dr. Books through a patient of mine who was having trouble with alcohol, among other things. Within several sessions with Dr. Books, this patient lost her desire for alcohol totally. I had been working with this patient for about a year, and many facets of her life were improving. However, this wonderful change that occurred so quickly and seemingly effortlessly stirred my curiosity.
That was eight years ago. I have referred many patients to her and vice versa.
We have developed a good and respectful team approach with many patients we have since shared. I appreciate her work immensely. She is intuitive, compassionate, and thorough in her approach to her patients.
4. BG, Ph.D. (Psychotherapist)
I have known Dr. Books for 15 years and find her to be extremely insightful, competent and caring with her patients. Because of the confidentiality of my work, several of my patients have experienced her work and have reported to me their positive changes. They don’t know I know Dr. Books; and when I talk with Dr. Books, I don’t reveal who tells me all these wonderful things about her. I just smile quietly on the inside.
5. Bev Gipple, M. Ed. (Tutor)
Over the past 12 years, Phyllis and I have discussed many learning problems of our various clients. She is always eager to hear my views as a tutor and former special education teacher. We discuss philosophy, practical learning strategies, personality profiles, family patterns – in short as many variables as we can think of that affect the learning process.
She has assembled professionals to speak to audiences on the various facets of learning, and I have enjoyed being one of those speakers. She has called me from Europe asking for testing and evaluation materials to help her clients around the world. She is innovative and thorough in her approach.
6. Bernice Dotz, (Retired School Teacher and Tutor)
For fifty years, it has troubled me that I had to flunk one of two twins in third grade when I was teaching. Doris simply couldn’t learn the material no matter how I taught. I taught school for several years, and have since started two pre-schools and an after school care program in Solvang.
I have raised seven children, am the proud grandmother of 16 and great grandmother of five. I have tutored a lot of children in my day. Nowadays, I do the pre and post scholastic testing on Dr. Book’s patients. I now call my house, The House of Miracles, based on all the miracles I’ve seen Dr. Books perform.
The first miracle I witnessed was with my grandson Luke, who was 14 at the time. He had flunked two grades. I know he was trying, because I spent hours and hours tutoring him. After Dr. Books worked with him, his walk went from pigeon-toed to straight, he grew _” and he could read fluently!!
I felt her work was too good to be kept a secret. I started bringing her out to California a week a month to treat patients. Once my store (Viking Men’s Shop) sold, I decided to dedicate the next ten years of my life to helping her get this work out.
Children are the key to our future. It makes me feel good to be able to help children get a better chance in life, thanks to Books Neural Therapy™.
7. Richard Rice, D.C. (Chiropractor)
Dr. Books started practicing in my office in 1986. She knew she wanted to work with children with learning differences and made a name for herself. Even though I used to kid her about being out of the office more than in (she travels and teaches a lot), over the years, patients consistently go out of their way to track her down. She is the best at what she does. Her reputation speaks for itself.
8. Karen Belknap
Principal of Rylie Academy
We opened a charter school in 1998. Over 70% of our kids are behind in academics. Most of our high schoolers don’t read beyond fifth grade level. Dr. Books was able to bring the reading scores of the children she worked with up several grade levels in a matter of days. One ADD child seemed to grow “common sense”; another child with autistic tendencies became more sociable; yet another one’s handwriting improved drastically. The parents and teachers and I are extremely pleased.
9. Reagan Cohen (Special Ed Teacher)
I can’t do in the classroom what I’ve witnessed with Dr. Books. Her work is some of the most powerful work I’ve ever seen.
10. J. Ackerman, MD (Psychiatrist)
As a traditional and holistic psychiatrist, I have enjoyed collaborating with Dr. Books. She is both skilled in the use of multiple approaches and intuitive about her patients. Continuity of care is predictable and easy. She continues to search for additional ways to make things better for people.
