01/03/12 5 4 5 5 Dr. Koo has performed 3 surgeries on different members of my family. He is not only knowledgeable, but in my opinion also very wise in choosing the methods and procedures that he uses. I have absolute confidence in his abilities as a surgeon. One family member had an ACL replacement. At the time we were told by several different friends that we could be referred to their Drs. who had worked extensively with Olympic Athletes and NBA players. We chose to stick with Dr. Koo as our first experience with him left us believing he is probably as good if not better than many high profile Drs. All three surgeries went extremely well. Dr. Koo was always willing to take the time to answer our questions and explain his procedures. He was always friendly and made us feel very comfortable. My family and I are very grateful to have such a phenomenal surgeon available in this area.  Respond

He went out of his way to insure I was looked after, knowing what I went though with the other dr. If it wasnt for dr.Koo I would not be walking because of the other dr. Im walking and doing alot better  Respond

17/01/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Koo quite literally saved my life. After being admitted to hospital following a traumatic accident, I met Dr. Koo. He was calm, honest and direct. Two surgeries were required and were performed successfully under difficult circumstances. Extremely helpful staff in recovery. Very cleanly conditions (esp. after appauling conditions at a rehab in toronto). Don't feel comfortable seeing anyone else. His advise was bang on the money and his precision in surgery is always mentioned by other surgeons I have had to see for follow-up.  Respond

04/01/11 5 4 5 5 This past summer (2010) I severely injured my leg, tearing off most of the skin from my lower thigh to my mid calf. Dr. Koo performed the surgery that day, and another one about a month later. He was excellent and my leg is now almost fully healed. I saw him nearly every week for several months after the injury and he was always very helpful and knowledgeable. I feel very fortunate that he was on call the day of my injury. He was always very calm and friendly, and helped put me at ease through a very traumatic experience. I had to drive nearly 2 hours to see him each time, but didn't mind at all because I only trusted him with my injury. I would definitely go to him again and highly recommend him.  Respond

25/11/07 5 3 5 5 Dr.Koo is very quiet and seems shy, I found this unusual at first until I realized he listens intently and pays attention to what concerns you. He answers all questions and has a lot of patience until you are satisfied with the answers. I have had him for two surgeries and couldn't have had a more positive experience. I would not hesitate to see him again if necessary.  Respond

19/06/07 2 1 2 I found Dr. Koo to be a very cold person, he did not offer any help or suggestions of any kind, his only suggestion was to go back to my family physician and see someone to deal with pain and wait for 13 years for a hip replacements.  Respond
