Dr Looby is so caring and took time to visit with me. I knew I was in good hands. I have several family members that highly recommended him to me. He has amazing staff and even sent me home with a beautiful pink rose!
Very personable. Takes time to listen to you. I would highly recommend.
Excellent patient skills. Great communicator—easy to understand. Did not seem rushed—gave me all the time I needed to understand the procedure he was recommending. Don’t usually enjoy doctor’s visits, but he made it enjoyable, as did his staff.
Took the time to listen and made sure I understood what to expect with surgery and after.
I was very impressed with the diagnostic and procedural skill of Dr. Looby and the efficiency and professionalism of the Institute. The scoping technology is amazing!
I have nothing but great things to say about Dr. Looby and his staff. I was very well taken care of. Everything from the initial diagnosis, to the surgery, to the rehab and follow-up visit has exceeded my expectations. I couldn’t be happier!
I had a great experience with Dr Looby and staff! They were the best!
A total experience was very efficient and effective!
As much as I dreaded surgery, Dr. Looby and his staff made a person feel at ease. Explained things very well and has wonderful personality for handling his patients. I could not have asked for anything to have been handled any different. If you’re looking for a doctor that is truly interested in the patient and the outcome it would be Dr. Looby. I could go on and on but I feel he is the BEST!
Great Doctor and staff. I had hip surgery that was the best.
I had labrum tear surgery from him. So, I can say he is really great!
Dr. Looby has done ALL of our orthopedic surgeries. He is kind, has great knowledge, listens and answers each of our questions with reassurance. He and his team are the best!
I love this place. Dr. Looby and PA Trea is great. I will be back in July!
We came to him for a second opinion and we are so glad we did! He was very friendly, knowledgeable, and easy to talk to and made my child feel very comfortable and let her know that there’s a light at the tunnel sooner than planned!
Dr. Looby and staff are all very helpful and kind. He was not forceful about having surgery but suggested other alternatives first. That allowed me to function for a couple more years before going under the knife. When I did have to have surgery, my healing time was quicker with less pain than my past experiences with other doctors. I would recommend Dr. Looby to anyone!
Dr. Looby and the orthopedic institute and the Sioux Falls specialty hospital are absolutely top notch.
Dr. Looby was very knowledgeable and took the time we needed. I would definitely recommend anyone to see Dr. Looby.
Dr. Looby did my total hip replacement and I was very pleased with the surgery. Everything was explained and showed to me. The minute I came to the hospital they were ready, no waiting, everything went so fast and explained as we went through it all. His staff was also the greatest! They were so helpful, friendly and always treated me so good. Thank you Dr. Looby and all his staff!
Dr. Looby was very helpful explaining what was going on.
Courteous to the max, did my left knee… and I feel is the best for treating my right. I’m very impressed by his work!
Dr. Looby and staff are great.
I’ve been a patient for 10+ years. Dr. Looby is an amazing surgeon and is great with all patients. A number of my family members and friends have gone to him for their orthopedic needs. There’s never been a bad experience or surgery. I highly recommend to anyone who is in need of an orthopedic surgeon!
Dr. Looby was very easy to talk to about my problem! He is very knowledgeable and has helped me!
I have had various surgeries on my knee and shoulder. I would highly recommend Dr. Looby.
Dr. Looby and his entire staff were outstanding. He took the time to explain my options for less invasive treatment and ultimately the full hip joint replacement. I appreciated the fact he didn’t want to rush to surgery but was willing to explore and explain all the options. When we did decide on the total hip joint replacement, he took the time to explain the procedure and what the future would look like. I could resume my physical activities including running. I am one month post-operative and have no pain and walking again without crutches or cane
Dr. Looby and his staff took great care of my son. He was late for the first appointment but on time for the next. Each time we were given the time needed to get our questions answered. We were not rushed at all. He was very thorough and explained everything well. The staff is friendly and very helpful.
I was extremely pleased with Dr. Looby and his staff. Would highly recommend them.
Friendliness, professionalism, and attention to detail are second to none. This was the second surgery with Dr. Looby. He does an amazing job.
Dr. Looby has always listened to me and been very helpful. He’s very easy to talk to. Makes you feel special.
Dr. Looby answered a lot of my questions in one hour than all my other doctors did in four years.
We travel across the state for 95% of our orthopedic needs. Dr. Looby has shown us a tremendous amount of knowledge and care. As my 15-year-old daughter says, “I want to go see my doctor, he always has an answer and I just trust him.” We are 100% comfortable with Dr. Looby and will travel to see him no matter what the situation is.
I appreciated that he did not recommend surgery the first time I seen him about two years ago which meant to me that he is not in it just for the money. When I went to see him this last summer he told me my knee was bad and if it was affecting my lifestyle I should get the knee replaced and it was doing just that so now it’s done.
I have gone to Dr. Looby a long time. Knows his stuff and is courteous.
Couldn’t have imagined a better experience with my knee replacement. I highly recommend
This was my first time going to Dr. Looby and the Orthopedic Institute. I was impressed by the friendly and efficient staff. While I arrived one hour early for my appointment, I still spent little time waiting to be seen. I scheduled my appointment with Dr. Looby based on a recommendation from my chiropractor. Dr. Looby was able to explain my condition and treatment options in patient-friendly language, answered my questions, and thanked me for seeing him.
Very thorough surgeon and great staff! They all took very good care of me!
Dr. Peter Looby is the only orthopedic doctor I would care to see due to his concern for the person themselves. Dr. Looby is an awesome doctor and I will always request his office for medical care. (He fixed my knee years ago—before internet history.) Dr. Looby is the best-no hands down. Thank you Dr. Looby for better health. It is never forgotten.
I highly recommend OI to all of my family, friends, and players with injuries. Amazing care and providers!
I saw the P.A. Ryan Slaba and Dr. Looby for the knee and ankle pain I was having, and I have to say that after I saw them, I got an injection and physical therapy with Adam Halseth and I feel great! Best place to go for orthopedic care.
Dr. Looby is very knowledgeable and caring. He answered my questions and was very interested in helping me to get back to my normal active lifestyle.
Very knowledgeable. Met all of my medical needs as well as answered all of my questions regarding my orthopedic issue.
There is no better facility, staff and physician!
My daughter had an ACL repair and meniscus surgery following a gymnastics injury ten months ago. I could not be happier with the entire experience with Orthopedic Institute. Dr. Looby is clearly an expert orthopedic surgeon and his staff, including PA, athletic trainer and physical therapist, are too. My daughter’s surgery went very well and her rehab has progressed nicely too. The physical therapist has kept me and her coaches informed about when it is safe to return to sports and it is obvious he really cares about her progress. My daughter is extremely satisfied with her progress in therapy as well. I would highly recommend Dr. Looby and his staff.
Dr Looby is a positive, upbeat professional. He promotes trust and security by his knowledge and experience.
Everyone from the guys at the valet station to Dr. Looby were wonderful! Each person I encountered met me with a gracious smile and cheerful attitude. As a senior gal, I appreciate that very much as sometimes it is difficult to feel the vibe with the younger folks. There was no judgement or impatience, only a sincere willingness to help me help them do their job so I can heal from my injury. There was none of “turn ‘em and burn ‘em” attitude that quite frankly, causes distrust and anxiety in patients. Cindy in insurance was absolutely stellar! Dr. Looby’s PA was excellent at the initial exam and sharing info with me as was my X-ray tech gal. I was so relieved when I got home about how I was treated and the procedures that were coming up that I could finally rest easier. Dr. Looby’s credentials and recommendations were impressive and he did not disappoint. He was super easy to talk to and very reassuring that he could fix me.
Dr Looby is quite simply, the best. He is knowledgeable, capable, courteous and caring. Fortunately, his entire support staff exhibits these same qualities. I am astounded by the quality of care I received, these people are the best, period.
I have seen several doctors at OI. I have received excellent care. The staff is very warm and caring. I left feeling much better and grateful of their experience and diagnostic skills. I also have brought my children in for treatment and received amazing care. I would ONLY recommend OI to my family and friends!
What a great doctor. Dr. Looby has seen me through knee and shoulder surgeries, with great skill and caring. He always makes sure I am doing ok and answers all my questions and listens to my concerns. It has been an awesome journey to being pain free and able to function normally. I will be able to dance at my daughter’s wedding. I am so grateful. What a blessing!
Great care and explanation from Pete.
I am very happy with the procedures that Dr. Looby has done for me. Thank you.
Dr. Looby is a great surgeon, very knowledgeable and takes his time to answer all questions and explains everything. Always happy to answer questions and helps encourage people in their surgical recovery.
