    Very well informed of process/treatment

  • Jul 13, 2021

    My main concern with Dr. Looze is that he has never seen me on time and does not appear to be concerned that MY time is valuable. He also does not return emails or respond to requests from a pharmacy for refills until I call to see if there is a problem. I have been left without pain management for over a week while waiting for a response.

  • Jul 9, 2021

    Dr. Looze provided info regarding my issue and prescribed the next procedures to take see what the root cause it.
