Patients That Inspire

“Smart, knowledgeable and to the point. Dr. Moore is a pleasant person and easy to talk to. He’s very intuitive and he assessed my situation quickly and got me scheduled for surgery soon. The surgery went well and I’m currently in the healing phase. I highly recommend this doctor to any veteran suffering from neck injuries or spinal disorders. I’m an Army retiree and he’s a naval officer that gave me the best experience at any hospital I have visited since retiring 15 years ago. ” Reggie B.
“What a great doctor. He is very understanding and knows his stuff. He put me at ease from the first appointment. Dr. Moore did a 6 level lateral back fusion from T12-S1 for me, and from the beginning he explained what was going on with my spine, the risks, and the benefits. If I need future spinal surgeries, I will make sure that he is my surgeon.” Tom K.
“I have never had a physician that was that talented yet so humble and personable. He ensures that you are just as much a part of the process that he is. I hope I never need another procedure like the one I had but if I do, I would fly around the globe just to work with Dr. Moore.” Grateful Patient
