Dr. Joseph F Looby has the following 2 specialties

  • Surgery of the Hand

    Hand surgeons are certified surgeons who are also experts in the function and structure of your wrists, hands and forearms. This allows them to treat arthritis, carpal tunnel, trigger finger and tennis elbow, most of which tend to result from repetitive and excessive use of the corresponding joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments.
    Hand surgeons also commonly work with patients who have fractures or broken bones from any kind of accident. If you're experiencing any kind of general pain in your hand, wrist or forearm that isn’t going away, a hand surgeon is probably your best resource.

Review for Dr. Looby, Grand Rapids and Holland, MI, Plastic Surgery

Dr. Looby was wonderful. I had read several reviews that he was always late for appointments. I found out the reason. He spends time with his patients! He spent an hour and a half with me. The first thing he said was, "I could read everything about you in this chart but I'd like to hear it directly from you." He was patient. Even though I did not end up needing plastic surgery (and he knew that I didn't want it), he was willing to go the extra mile to answer every question I had.

Horrible

I was referred here by er after cutting my hand open and they said I severed a tendon. The staff was horrible and rude Looby the hand specialist kept cutting me off when I was talking to him and speaking to me like I was stupid like I was an inconvenience to be there told me he didn't want to cut my hand back open and if I severed a tendon it didn't seem to be a main one so he didn't want to fix it. Half of my finger is numb and my grip is weak. The er doc didn't stitch it all the way thinking I'd get right in to have it opened up and fixed so it's not even closed properly and they wanted to just put a bandaid on it until I asked for strip to hold the wound shut took me a week and a half to get seen just for him to do nothing. So now I'm waiting for the VA to get me an appt somewhere else. Worst plan I've ever been and on top of that the place looked dirty inside the rooms.

Great doctor, terrible office staff

I have been to Dr. Looby's office twice for my daughter who is a small child, each time the nurse had little communication with us while we were in the room she didn't even know if the appointment was for me or my daughter (which there is 30 years difference between us). When we were called back for her 2nd appointment, the nurse used her middle name and not first name. For each appointment the nurse asked who the appointment was for, what it was for and our guess on our daughter's weight, that was all she EVER said to us. We had to wait for over an hour (which with an infant is a VERY long time) forour post-op visit with no apolgoies from office staff, nurse or doctor. We saw the doctor for a total of 30 seconds. He is a great doctor but he definitely needs a new office staff especially the sloppy nurse who doesn't even bother to know who the patient is.
