This was my third consultation with Dr. Kooima after she successfully repaired bi-lateral shoulder surgery. She is very thorough, kind, responsive and will answer any questions you have and you do not feel rushed. She is the most "on-time" and punctual physician/surgeon, I have ever met! I highly recommend her for any consultation, treatment and surgery for shoulders and knees. She also has a wonder team working with her including, scheduler, medical assistant and PA, Clayton Bates. You will receive friendly, comprehensive, surgical care from consultation to physical therapy.

The doctor was very professional and looked beyond the pain in my knee when she realized the knee actually looked good in an X-ray and MRI I had brought with me from another dr. After checking range of motion she did a hip X-ray and went over it with me as it didn’t look good. She referred me to an associate that specializes in the hip. I thought the pain I was having in my hip was from my hurting knee. She explained that the hip often can cause knee pain as it was taking all the weight.

Dr. Kooima was the best from the first appointment. Taking her immediate advice about repairing torn rotator cuff, to surgery versus attempting physical therapy for numerous months. The surgery went well, as did 4 months of pt. She is tops with her skills, advice and compassion. Would rate her a 10 and gladly give her a referral at anytime!

Dr. Kooima was attentive to my problem and when it was less severe than originally thought she offered a cortisone injection and got me right into physical therapy. I would highly recommend her.

I met with Dr Kooima and she took the time to visit my history and review the X-Rays that shows that the bones where ok and order a MRI to check for a torn rotator cuff injury. I been waiting for years in pain to get someone to help me get it taken care of.
