Broken Hill Hospital, Emergency Department
Dr Koster is very personable and focuses on the the priority issues. He often takes extra time to listen despite having a busy waiting room. I am very grateful he arranged some diagnostic imaging tests and specialist referrals which allowed us find and treat something that could otherwise have been fatal if not found so early. Post op consultations have also been thorough and reassuring.
Very friendly, very thorough. Would recommend him as a GP to anyone. Belconnen Mall Medical Centre is also a great location, with online booking available to see him, and he works weekends.
Dr Koster is polite, kind, approachable, and is on time. He takes the time to listen to your problems and explains things very clearly. I can’t not praise him highly enough.
I would like to thank him very much, he helped me to get over a pain in my stomach I had for 5 years, he has a derp experience and listen very well.
Thanks a lot
Dr Koster is one of the best doctors that I have ever been too, he really cares about you as an individual not as a number, he takes the time to get to know you so that he can treat you better.
Dr Koster is a miracle worker!
I’ve bounced around several GP practices (after moving 100km away, then back again, then getting tired of another GP closer to home – long story). I have a number of complicated conditions – mostly stemming back to Cauda Equina Syndrome from 7 years ago. None of my other doctors noticed one extra condition that, in hindsight, I’ve had for at least 5 years, creeping up while the CES subsided.
One brief walk from the waiting room to Dr Koster’s room, and a quick check of my hip, was seemingly enough for Dr Koster’s instincts to kick in and diagnose an unrelated case of Bursitis, on my first visit.
After we dug up the rest of my medical history, Dr Koster sent me off for an ultrasound. The radiologist confirmed it, and the subsequent injection has brought my hip from 1% to 90% – in a matter of days!
The pain is mostly gone. The limp is mostly gone. And not being in pain means my self-control is starting to return and I’m eating better than, well, anytime I can recall! I had been resigned to a lifetime, but now I’m free!
I’ll be eternally grateful to Dr Koster. While I’ve only been seeing him for two weeks, I couldn’t recommend him any more highly!
I visited the Belconnen Medical Centre for the very first time back in August, after returning from holiday where I lost vision in my right eye. I found Dr Louis Kosters name through the online Health Engine booking tool and locked in my first appointment. Louis listened to my history and symptoms and immediately had me go for an MRI. The following day I was diagnosed with MS. Louis managed to get me answers to something that I’d been seeking from other GP’s for around 10 years and I’m now able to focus on treatment and my overall wellbeing instead of unexplainable symptoms.
Louis is by far the most personable, thoughtful, caring and thorough GP I’ve seen in some time. He has also remembered me at each subsequent visit, with no need to prompt or go over my history each time. It is such a relief to feel like a person and not a number like I have felt with many other GP’s and Medical Centers in the area.
I will forever be grateful for Louis and I cannot recommend or thank him enough.
I have visited Dr Louis Koster numerous times for different issues.
He is very thorough and takes time to understand your medical problems. He has also arranged urgent scans when needed, and followed up promptly.
I have also taken my autistic son to see Dr Koster and he treated him with respect and kindness.
It is brilliant to find a gp who is genuinely caring and thorough.
Also brilliant that you can book in easily online and it is bulk billed.
i liked the fact that dr Koster took my daughters illness seriously and was very kind and thoughtful
Could be improved: there is nothing about dr koster that needs improving
Louis perservered and found out what was wrong with me despite the symptoms for the illness not presenting as normal, Louis has a carm easy going nature that puts u at ease, He has a wealth of knowledge and he took his time to work out what was wrong. Thorough, Professional easy to talk to. Thanks
Dr Koster made the time and effort to build a strong rapport with my father and considered him foremost in choice of language and explanations. It was a remarkable consultation which seasoned practical advice and treatment with a message of respect and hope. Outstanding follow up too.
Very caring, did not try to rush me through – listened well and considered my case. I have some very unusual problems and (including Ehlers-Danloss Syndrome (which has many ways of expressing itself), yet Dr. Koster made an accurate diagnosis which resulted in my problem being overcome.
Could be improved: Very little if anything. Dr. Koster actually reached a diagnosis which (although different from some previously attended Doctors in Sydney) was the correct one which resulted in a rapid improvement which enabled me to continue with my holiday in Broken Hill. He is to be commended.
About time! A doctor who puts his patients first and treats you as a fellow human being and not just a number in a queue. Dr Louis Koster calls a spade a “spade”. He discusses your problem in terms you can understand. His door is always open. Professional in every way. “No”, he’s not god, but close
Could be improved: Not much.
Dr cost has the ability to engage with patients on a level that makes you feel welcomed and genuinely listened to. Dr cost leaves no stone unturned when it comes to diagnosis and treatment. He is very professional and one of the only Dr’s I genuinely trust. I was treated in a short time with a smile
Could be improved: Nil.
His follow up is the best I have ever inconted also showed grate emperthey
Could be improved: With this dr not much he is on the money
Dr Louis Koster is a very good doctor. He listens to the patient and is spot on with his diagnoses. It is a pleasure to talk to him and I feel very comfortable to have him treat my family.
Dr Koster follows up well with test results and medications.
Could be improved: Waiting time to see doctors
Louis Koster has exceptional diagnostic skills, was very tactfull and sympathetic when talking with a family member in relation to a sensitive subject . Dr Kostner has diagnosed acurately and prescribed the correct treatment ensuring a speedy recovery, every time
