What People Say About Dr. Steven Koos, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Get ready to feel like you don’t matter in the nation’s first green oral surgery office. After anticipating surgery three times and being rescheduled 3 times in 60 days, they bumped me the morning of my surgery. I didn’t even know until I called the office that morning to check to see if I could have a sip of water. My surgery was delayed another 15-20 min whilethe staff checked to make sure that they were able to operate on me as I was “under no circumstance to have any water” Now, the actual surgery itself went off without a hitch. Things were just fine, and the staff was patient and nice. I had to wait THREE DAYS for them to get me back into the office for an uncontrollable pain that woke me up twice in the middle of the night. Now the doctor, who will tell you to call or text any time after surgery is lying to you. In fact, Dr. Koos won’t even read the context of your messages. Do yourself a solid & find a different doctor to operate on you.

Wisdom tooth extraction is, obviously, a scary experience for a lot of people. When I visited Ora for the first time for consultation, however, my fears were taken away and I was comforted by the professionalism, friendliness, cleanliness and overall feeling in the office. On top of everything, pricing is affordable, reasonable and well explained. Surgery was a breeze, and Dr. Koos personally followed up with me on the evening of my surgery via phone - saying a lot about his professionalism!

I went to Dr. Koos about five years ago to remove all four wisdom teeth at the same time. I can't believe I didn't write a review for him back then it went so well. I'm so glad I found him, I chose him out of three others that I went to. Everything went smoothly and great recovery. I'm about to have another molar extracted by him in 6 days and will write another review for that! Two five stars from me :)

Oral surgery (implants, wisdom tooth, jaw surgeries etc.) are a serious business and can lead to complications if things go wrong which is why I wanted to choose the best doctor to avoid possible complications. I am confident that I succeeded in finding the best doctor (Dr Koos) for implants in this area. I had my first implant yesterday and found Dr Koos to be very detailed, very proficient, very experienced, and uses modern technology.

I am grateful to Dr. Koos and his staff for their expertise and kindness. Dr, Koss explains to cause of the problem, the procedure required to address the problem, and the and aftercare to be undertaken by the patient. Dr. Koos also phoned me on the night of the surgery. I would rate Dr. Koos as one of the best medical doctors I have met in my career. I strongly commend Dr. Koos to anyone requiring dental surgery of the highest quality. Sincerely, Charles F. Schmidt, Ph. D (Science)

Dr. Koos was that he was fully attentive and understanding of my needs and concerns bout tooth exposure and bracketing surgery. He answered and explained almost every question I had in mind. Dr. Koos has made me feel complete trust and comfort during my tooth exposure and bracketing surgery. His approach is to make every patient less pain and swelling and most comfortable state you can be. I will not hesitate to go back to him should I have any future oral surgery done.He is the best.

I had a great experience getting my wisdom teeth removed by Dr.Koos. All of the staff is friendly and make the stay as comfortable as possible. The procedure was quick and I experienced barely any gum swelling. I even received a follow-up phone call after the appointment to see how I was feeling. I would definitely recommend Ora for oral surgery.
