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 | October 5, 2016

Dr Looney has occasionally had to "squeeze" me into a slot on a given day in order for me to be seen so on those days I know he doesn't have a lot of "chat" time. He is still always thorough in his exam, explanations and care even when he is rushed.
