      What can I say. I was truly blessed to discover Dr. Looby again! I had worked with him when he was a resident in the 90's. I phoned his office from New Mexico, sent them my medical records and x-rays and got scheduled for an appointment for as soon as we could make our way back to South Dakota. I was treated with compassion, professionalism by Dr. Looby and his entire office. Surgery was scheduled immediately, they arranged everything so quickly and efficiently I was amazed. Wow, would have had to wait for months in NM.

      Dr Looby is very personable and is thorough in going over your X-ray results. He points out specific areas of concern and areas where he has made repair, if surgery was needed. He doesn’t hurry through your time with him, but answers any questions you may have and always ends with “Is there anything else that concerns you that I can answer or help you with?”

      Dr. Looby and his team are amazing. I was recommended Dr. Looby by several friends after my last knee surgeon had moved. He and his team were all very caring and professional and explained all treatment options. I am very thankful to Dr, Looby and his team, and I highly recommend him.

      Dr Looby and his medical staff are awesome! I am so happy that my friend referred me to him. I had my left knee done 8/20/19 and now the right one on 11/7/19. I have a lot of healing to go through but I know that he and his staff will be there quite literally every step of the way. I have been bow legged 90% of my life. That is ko longer the case!
