Dr Koo spent the right amount of time with me and I feel gave me a good diagnosis. Even though he saw my type of case probably 300 times, he spent the time with me to explain things and he answeredall my questions - didn't feel rushed. He was friendly and engaging and seemed genuinely concerned about my condition. I would certainly recommend him to others.

Everything was very efficient. I felt I got a well-considered, accurate diagnosis and a good way forward. However, would’ve appreciated just a teensy bit more time, as I felt a bit hurried and didn’t have time to think of any additionalquestions. It won’t keep me from returning. Overall, a good experience. Thanks!

Doctor Koo and his staff were all extremely welcoming, kind and attentive. I highly recommend Dr. Koo, and believe me, I've seen enough specialists to know when I'm in the presence of a great one. I have never left a publicreview for anyone or anything, that's the level of how great the experience was. Just go there. Period.

Dr. Koo spent quite a bit of time with us to understand where our daughter was with herinjury and PT, and to recommend the best treatment path. He answered all questions that we had.

Might have been the most efficient Dr. visit in my recollection. I was admitted, triaged, x-rayed, examined, treated and released in less than 45 minutes. All that but I did not ever feel rushed. Just efficiency in action.

I have been seeing Dr KOO for over a year. I drive 2.5 to 3 hours to see him rather than using an ortho in my area. I had a bad experience in my area with Rotator cuff surgery. I hadlost all use of my arm and a year off work due to a botched surgery and after care by my first ortho. I saw Dr KOO and he scheduled surgery to repair and within less than 3 months, I was back to work and did regain most range of motion of my arm. Now, I have injured opposite shoulder and drove 450 miles to see Dr. KOO. I will never trust any other ortho with any joint problem that I ever have.
