I found Dr De Moura to be very honest and forthright. I was not rushed or hurried in any way. He explained things thoroughly. He was kind and knowledgeable. He made me feel very comfortable, despite his diagnosis? I wound have him do surgery on me anytime! Feeling comfortable and confident with respect to any surgery, let alone, spinal surgery, is critically important to me!!

Dr. De Moura did my neck surgery and the experience and recovery has been great. This doctor remained professional taking the time to answer my million and one questions. What I loved the most is that after the surgery the doctor just doesn't push you off to his PA's, he takes the time to meet and examine you during each post opt and he personally checks all notations from his staff to make sure the information is correct.

I had surgery yesterday August 18, 2020 and the doctors, nurse staff were kind, welcoming, warm, and made me feel comfortable. I was fussed over and constantly checked on and made extremely comfortable. The staff was superb. The nurses practice cleaning protocols and assured my safety as well as their own while being perfect care providers. I highly recommend Dr. de Moura and his beautiful professional staff.

Incompetent, arrogant, refuse to answer questions. I had to shut my mouth and believe everything he had to say. Worst of all Dr DeMoura make me go to his Long Island office to have an Mri when the same Mri I could have it done 10 minutes away from my home, but since the Mri facility in Long Island belongs to him, he just wanted to make money instead of finding a solution to my problem.

Dr. de Moura performs miracles! Monuments need to erected in his honor. The whole process from booking the surgery to being released from the hospital was so smooth and effortless. I am now 3 weeks post-op and getting better every day, no more numbness and tingling shooting down my legs, no more crippling back pains (if you saw me at the store you wouldn’t even know I just had major spine surgery 3 weeks ago!). Dr. de Moura has the hands of an angel, they are made to heal!
