Provider Reviews

I have zero piece of mind after my appointment with this doctor. I think I seen him for a total of 2 minutes. He didn't listen to any of my worries or concerns.

Review for Dr. Moughrabi

This guy seems a very knowledgeable Dr yet spent a lot of time arguing against the effectiveness of masks based on something he saw on Laura Ingraham instead of established science. I don't trust him to put his patients wellbeing before his own political bias.
