Very friendly knowledgeable doctor .great work!
Loved it... even the cortisone shot :)
All of the staff at Dr. Koo's office were friendly and efficient. We were seen at our appointment time, maybe a little early. Dr. Koo spent quite a bit of time with us to understand where our daughter was with her injury and PT, and to recommend the best treatment path. He answered all questions that we had.
I’ve seen him before. He is top notch!
Great vary help full
He was very kind and let me know what I needed to know to proceed.
I liked Dr. Koo a lot. He was very nice and knew exactly what was going on with me.

Dr Koo was a professional individual and his staff is awesome
Dr. Sam Koo MD is very professional and kind and courteoushe took care of me and also took care of my wife in the same appointment not very many Drs would do this. Thanks Dr Koo
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.
Dr. Koo and staff are very professional and caring.
He is very kind and knowledgeable. Appreciate his help.
Very impressed. Dr Koo spent the time with me, answered all of my questions, and did not seem rushed. I was seen before my appointment time and was finished up. Very quickly.
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 had lost 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.
He was very great and explained the diagnosis where I could understand and explained all options for treatment
I have seen Dr. Koo before and would absolutely recommend him. I was in and out in 30 minutes and that included x-rays.
Love that they were on time for my appointment and were able xray on the spot.
Dr. Koo explained everything and answered all of my questions.
Very professional and quick once arriving! Would definitely recommend to other patients look for a great ortho office!
My office visit was a pleasant time with the outcome I was hoping for to help alleviate my painful situation. I was scheduled for surgery quickly and efficiently. questions and answers were specific and helpful. this will be my second procedure with Dr. Koo and I would highly recommend him to anyone who asked.
Dr. Koo is personable, knowledgeable and efficient. The treatment of my injury is going great and I feel confident that I will be as good as new in no time.
Was a great visit. Beacon orthopedic doctors are the best.
Dr. Koo listened to my concerns and answered all of my many questions.
Seen right away. Very nice office staff. Dr. Koo was very personable and matter-of-fact, very enjoyable to meet!
Nice guy, quick appointment, diagnosed right away, easy to talk to about next steps.
They took me almost immediately. Dr. Koo was very nice and professional and gave me Manu options for my care and helped me decide what was best for me.
Dr.Koo was good explaining about my symptoms.
As soon as I completed the paperwork, I was called back to see the doctor. After x-rays, no waiting in between, the doctor quickly came in, examined my hand and developed a plan. I had two other providers tell me that I would need surgery but Dr. Kooks hopeful that after several weeks in a cast surgery will not be necessary. That was music to my ears. I was fitted for a cast and back on the road home in no time. The cast was heated up and molded to fit my hand perfectly. It almost looks like a scuba sleeve. Very lightweight, thin, and best of all, it can get wet! I had a great experience. Thank you!
One of the better visits to a doctor iPad
WALKED OUT FEELING THAT I'M ON TRACK WITH MY HEALING AND CONTINUATION OF THERAPY.
The goal of my visit was about a resolution of my health issue on a finger, and Dr. Sam was a hand specialist who gave me an immediate treatment on the first appointment. He told me to observe it for a couple of days. I will have to see.
Highly reccomend All dr's at beacon are top class
My visit with Dr. Sam Koo was good. I had just finished my paper work and I was called in, The person who took me back went briefly through my history and then Dr. Koo came in immediately after. He was kind, informative and very professional. Since I live in Indiana I was glad his office was easily accessible from I 74. All in all I would give Beacon Orthopaedics a gold star.
He listened! He took the time to answer all my questions without the attitude of being in hurry to get out. Would recommend him to friends and family.
Dr. Koo is great with my daughter. His assistants are great too. He takes the time to listen and really cares about his patients' health.
I am impressed with this office! They have a very friendly staff and Dr. Koo has a great bedside manner, is very knowledgeable and takes the time to answer your questions. The fact that there is a Beacon Orthopedic so close to home, is a great bonus for me.
Very efficient office with friendly staff and doc
This was our second injury that we saw Dr Koo for. Would absolutely see him again
Doctor was to the point but also explained things in a way I could easily understand. He got me in and got me out. Very efficient; kind and knowledgeable.
Positive experience. He greeted me warmly and knew that I was Becky Mitchell's Uncle. Diagnoses were probably right on.
Dr.Koo was very informative and had a real concern on my situation and how best to deal with the issue. I highly recommend his services to anyone looking for a hand doctor.
I have been to three of the Beacon offices and every time this team has been at the top of their game. I drive over 80 miles passing other providers and will continue to use Dr. Koo and the Beacon team as needed. I have a friend that I have shared my experience with and they will make a 110 mile drive to see Dr. Koo. Shirley W
The lady at the front desk wasn't real friendly, but everyone else was very nice and professional. Very pleased with getting into the office visit without a long wait in the waiting room.
Dr. Koo was kind and patient. He listened and found problems in my MRI that Hamilton did not!
Very professional and friendly staff. Dr. Koo was friendly, took his time, was very attentive to my concerns and explained my condition and options thoroughly. It was a very pleasant experience!
Amazing as always. Straight to the point, ask any questions, not beat around the bush, and wonderful advice/next step. He also initially explains quite well so not waste time. Nurses are great/thorough and receptionists try to make it as easy as possible. Thumb surgery was very efficient and very quick recovery. Details on what to do are very easy to understand. Extremely recommend.
Top notch ! Very professional and caring . Felt very trusting of his expertise
Dr. Koo is great! I highly recommend his services! He made me feel very comfortable right away and is very personable.
Great visit. Personnel wad very friendly and professional.
I had the best experience at a doctor's office of all time today!! Dr. Koo took his time explaining things to me, and gave me options for treating my ailment. Their office was clean and if you are a fan of sports you will enjoy all the pictures of athletes that they have provided care for. All of the nurses I interacted with had the same personality and great demeanor that the doctor posses. I am going to an appointment with one of his partners next week, and I will be eager to see if that visit is as great as this!!
He is one of the best doctors I have ever seen. Very kind and takes time with his patients. He gives the best injections in your hand joints.
Great explanation and recommendation for my hand numbness
Dr. Koo was prepared, professional and very personable.
Very friendly and informative. Would definitely see him again if necessary.
Understood the problem and offered a solution
Great first visit with Dr, Koo.

Dr. Koo was prompt, professional, courteous and took the time to answer my questions and address my concerns. I am confident he has the knowledge and skills to treat my problem and help me recocer. The staff at Beacon is always polite and professional and they have an excellent interdisciplinary team that has been a great service to me in the past with injuries and I know will be there for me if needed with this ailment.
This is the second time I've seen Dr Koo for two different problems. I would highly recommend him. Very professional friendly and thorough. And have never had to wait long for my appointment. Always glad to listen to me and answer any questions.
Always nice, professional, and quick visit! Love him!
I was first seen and told my Carpal tunnel story to 2 people before seeing him. I was frustrated because I wanted to tell HIM about it and not have to repeat it 3x. I was told I needed to do an X-ray, and the person asked me if I wanted to take it from the 2nd arm. I thought to myself my hands are important enough so I said yes to 2 hands. When the doctor spoke to me I asked him if he was going to show me the carpal tunnel on the x-ray and he said it is just bones. I felt silly for not knowing and wish I had been told it was necessary for both. I am really upset about it since my insurance will charge me a lot of money for it. The doctor came in and told me nothing. Nothing. I asked many questions he pretty much answer a yes or or no and gave me printed info. I could have googled this information. I will never return for such an unsatisfactory and empty appointment. He did not show me the exercises, spoke about therapy, possible vitamins, which stage of carpal tunnel I was..I could not generate all the questions myself, since he is the expert. Really frustrating.
Dr Koo was very professional and down to earth. He is great with my 6 yo; we will definitely continue to see him for any future incidents. :)
Dr. Koo and his staff are top-rate. They are quick and efficient, but also take time to listen to my concerns and address them. I would definitely recommend Dr. Koo to anyone who is looking for a hand specialist.
Dr. Koo is very professional and is straight with you. He is trustworthy and knows what he's talking about.
Pleasant bedside manner. Told me what my options were. Answered all my questions with a smile. Even my dumb ones.
He's an awesome Doctor
I recommend dr Koo. He is a great dr. The only thing I hate, is filling out all the paper work over and over again. I saw him in December , and still took 20 min to fill what I thought was a redundant amount of paper work. Other than that, I would highly recommend.
I was able to get an appointment with Dr. Koo the day after I first called his office. It was great to not have a long wait while I was in pain.
My appointment was the most efficient and well run doctors appointment I have ever been to! They supplied me with most of the paperwork I needed to fill out prior to the appointment. I was being seen for an injured hand. In 20 minutes I met with the nurse, received and x-ray and was consulted by Doctor Koo. I arrived 25 minutes before my appointment. They took me back early and was done by the time of my schedule appointment. WOW!!
Dr. Koo was wonderful. I appreciated the time and information he provided. Very personable which is a bonus.
Quick and efficient, very professional!
Dr. Koo is very knowledgeable and proficient. But he is also kind, and concerned about his patient, me... He did surgery on my wrist and has explained everything to me. He continues to see me to total wellness.
Dr. Koo is a superb hand surgeon. I felt immediately comfortable when he greeted me. He asked pointed questions to elicit information about my problem (I had already had multiple x-rays of my hand taken). His focused exam was spot on without causing me much pain in the process of arriving at his diagnosis. He then offered me several options for treatment. All this was accomplished with a friendly, unhurried yet efficient style. Initial treatment consisted of numbing my hand followed by a steroid injection during which he told me everything he was doing, step by step. I returned yesterday to get a second round of treatment. If any doctor visits could be considered a pleasant experience, visits with Dr. Koo will come as close as one could hope for. He certainly gets my highest recommendation!
Dr. Koo anawers my questions and has been helping my hand problems. Definitely have recommended him to others and will continue to. Thank you Dr. Koo!
Dr.Koo, Top notch Doctor. Great bedside manner.
Dr. Koo and his support staff are up beat and super friendly. I have been very happy with Dr. Koo, he took the time to meet with me and sympathized with my issue. I would recommend Dr. Koo and this practice to anyone!
My visit with Dr.Koowas very good. He is very exp!icit in the diagnosis and is very easy to talk to. I would highly recommend.
I thought that he was very informative,and gave me all the information that I needed to make a determination on what was the best choice of care for my medical problem.
The entire staff was friendly & went out of their way to be helpful. I showed up a few minutes early to complete paperwork & was in radiology by my scheduled appointment time. Dr Koo himself is very personable & informative. I feel like this group is committed to providing a positive experience for the patient as well as their families.
Dr. Koo offered me several options for the pain that was diagnosed as arthritis. The one I chose was administered quickly and almost painlessly. I recommend Dr Koo and his entire staff. Courteous and knowledgeable. I will be making an appointment with another Beacon physician for another problem.
Everyone involved was excellent. From the front desk to the x ray technician to the doctor himself were all very friendly and efficient. Doctor Koo was knowledgeable, informative, and friendly
Very good. Explained his diagnosis in an easy to understand way. Gave me a couple options. A very nice doctor.
He was great. Very knowledgable and great bed side manner.
