I've seen many positive ratings for Dr. Looby. Mine is anything but positive. The receptionists are rude, the wait time was never less than 2 hours. He spent no more than 10 minutes with me discussing my knee. He did two scopings of my knee, two full rounds of Synvisc, and finally a total knee replacement. Very condescending, rude, acted like I was wasting his time, even though he admitted that there was a serious problem with my knee. He repeatedly told me that I weighed too much and that was causing serious problems. My BMI is normal. On my final check-up to see him after the knee replacement, my daughter (an adult) came with me because she wanted to see if he was as bad as I said he was. She told him to his face that he was very rude, narcissist and condescending. RIGHT ON!!
