Review for Dr. Moffa

Didn’t listen to my questions or concerns. Only does what he wants to do and treat. I have to go back because I have to say to my neurosurgeon, I exhausted all options before surgery. Appointment was rushed. Disappointed.

Dr. Kazzaz singlehandedly saved my husband's life. Without her he would not have received the amazing care he required. She went out of her way to help us in every way imaginable. Other Dr.'s should take a class from her.
