Accepting new patients

I've been very active in sports my entire life. From basketball to softball to triathlons plus I still enjoy cycling and skiing very much. I like that as an orthopedic surgeon, my JOB is to help keep other people active and doing what they like. I am dedicated to giving the best patient care. I try to get to know all of my patients on a personal level. I replaced a shoulder for a patient who lived in Michigan. She followed me to Arizona to have her other shoulder and her knee replaced. She said she couldn't find this level of care in Michigan.

Patient Comments (7)
Mesa, AZ |
Cynthia Kooima did a knee scope on my knee last year for my meniscus.. She told me that I may have some arthritis in my affected area in the future. What she didn't tell me that after she was done, I would need a knee replacement the very next year. She even gave me a $800 injection to help with the pain, which turned out to be useless (bone on bone). She is more worried about drumming up biz, then your well being. She's a hack, stay away from her and the Mezona clinics. You've been warned.

I had met with another surgeon prior to meeting with Dr. Kooima and was not impressed. I went to see her for a second opinion. She took the time to really talk to me and understand my pain and what was going on. Surgery it was! On the day of the surgery even though she herself was recovering from surgery that took place 2 weeks prior she was awesome. She realized once getting into my shoulder that it wasn't what the MRI had shown and fixed the actual problem. I would completely recommend.
Mesa, AZ |
She was condescending, dismissive, and downright disrespectful toward the things I had to say. She did not seem to take my input into consideration in decisions about what my care should be. She seemed to be inconvenienced and in a hurry to get through my appointment. She did not explain things well, especially what sort of care plan she had in mind. I am definitely seeking a different doctor.

Excellent Doctor! I didn't need surgery but if I did, I would trust her 100%. Very thoroughly examined; thoughtful, gave me the time I needed, answered questions and referred me when needed. Awesome doctor.

None better. There are not enough adjectives to explain what an excellent doctor is.....Dr. K would certainly go far beyond each one, I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs an orthopedic surgeon. Well done Dr. and thank you.
in Mesa, AZ |
She is a very caring and friendly doctor. She is an excellent surgeon. Everything was explained to me in detail. I have complete confidence in her and her staff.
