“Dr. Koester was a breath of fresh air. I began my treatment for a broken ankle in Salem where I was immediately told that I would need major surgery. Dr. Koester spent a great deal of time reviewing my X-rays, interviewed me at length and explained every aspect of the injury and my options for addressing it. It’s been several months since I removed the boot and my ankle feels great. I have no residual pain or mobility issues. Coming to Slocum saved me pain, costs and I’m sure ongoing problems with my ankle. Thanks!”
– Don E.

“We didn't have to wait too long to see Dr. Koester and he remembered my husband's previous, initial, visits. He quickly determined what needed to be done and arranged for further CT immediately. The follow up for assignment to a surgeon came today and Owen has an appointment with surgeon tomorrow. We appreciate this immediate effort to get him cared for!”
– Owen W.
“He has always been a wonderful Dr. for my son whenever he has had injuries playing football. He is a great Dr.! he is kind, clear and very informative with Tyler's injuries. Very thorough!”

“Dr. Koester was responsive and attentive, and the support staff and x-ray technicians were also efficient and helpful.”
– Victoria W.
“I was examined by Dr. Koester and he diagnosed me with hip bursitis and knee arthritis. I have had several cortisone shots in the past, but none of them worked as well as the ones Dr. Koester gave me. Also the physical therapist he sent me too was top notch and my outcome was excellent. Today I am 99% pain free and moving more than I have in 2 years. Dr. Koester really knows his stuff as well as the PT. I could not be more satisfied and I am telling all my friends about the great outcome and recommending these two doctors to anyone who is in need of this kind of treatment. Thank you so much Dr. Koester. Well done Slocum!”
– Christine W.
