My review is more for Dr. Moazzez's office. The surgeon seems like a qualified professional (surgery planned, not completed yet). But, his staff is AWFUL. Honestly, the worst medical office experience of my life. They are aggressive, oftentimes rude, and thus far unable to help with any question about my account, insurance, appointments, etc that I ask. I've seriously considered putting my health on hold to avoid having to work with an office of apparently incapable people.

I've only met him once for my initial consultation and he came off as friendly and approachable. This review is mainly regarding his office staff. I would give 1 star for his staff, but I don't want to hurt his stats, especially since he's had to work very hard to get where he is. That being said, the first time I came to the office, the guy up front was watching sports on his computer right in front of me, like I wasn't there. The nutritionist came off as not liking her job at all. There were

He is extremely friendly and very down to earth. Has a great bedside manner! He went over a lot of information about my surgery beforehand. He appreciated my concerns of anethesia and did his best to calm me down thinking I wouldnt come out of the surgery. An overall great person. Would definitely recommend to anyone else looking at having bariatric surgery.
