We saw his PA Andrew first who is amazing and very helpful, and explains things so well, then Dr. Koo came in and he was great as well. Took the time to reiterate the injury with my hand and how to improve my discomfort.

Explained my situation, then went through all possible treatments. Was thorough and very professional. Unfortunately my condition is one where I will have to get further treatment but the decision is already made as to where and who will provide the next step

Dr. Koo was very short and didn't seem to be even listening. It didn't occur to me until this evening that he didn't even look at my knees which may be normal, not sure. He just seemed to be in a hurry. I will not schedule with him again.

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!

I have never left a publicreview for anyone or anything, that's the level of how great the experience was. Just go there. Period.
