Dr. Looney and his PA, Jonathan, are always on top of things. They are patient, polite, courteous, answer all your concerns in language you can understand. They respect what you have to say. They are the best and I would highly recommend them to any of my family and friends!

Patient | June 20, 2017

Dr. Looney is excellent and you do not have to wait 2 1/2 hours just to get checked in and then see him before you depart. He is a physician that is very concerned about the overall health of his patient and very truthful.
Patient | June 19, 2017

As explained earlier, I think Dr. Looney is a wonderful doctor who is very competent in his field, but also cares about his patients. I am glad I found him for a Physician.

Patient | March 30, 2017

The doctor did not see me use my new device. The staff showed me how to use it but then left. I had a lot of trouble getting out of the office. I needed more help and information.
Patient | March 27, 2017

I was super impressed with Dr Looney! Very thorough and helpful! I will recommend him to anyone that has any bone or joint concerns. Outstanding!
Patient | March 26, 2017

Only improvement in care is that Dr. Looney is focused only on his area that he operated on (my hip). I continue to have lower back pain and no questions about anything else hurting at that time.
Patient | March 24, 2017

Dr. Looney is an excellent doctor & I would strongly recommend him to anyone.
Patient | February 21, 2017

Patient | February 6, 2017

Very good experience.
Patient | January 30, 2017

Few people can describe a knee replacement as a good experience as it is tough surgery. I can not imagine that anyone could have a better experience than I had with Dr. Looney. My husband liked him very much and my friends swooned over him. Most people do not expect a surgeon to be so nice and he has a good sense of humor.
Patient | January 17, 2017

I drive an 1 1/2 hours to go here. I love this place.
Patient | January 9, 2017

My favorite doctor!

Patient | December 21, 2016

He probably should have explained the 3 limitations for people that have a posterior total hip replacement when he 1st knew I needed one.
Patient | December 16, 2016

Dr. Looney is excellent in all ways. I refer everyone to him.
Patient | December 12, 2016
