Thank you Dr. Forrest Moore for saving my son's life on Father's Day 2016 from the depths of my heart. My son was 28 at the time and accidentally shot himself in the abdomen while cleaning his gun which he thought was empty. I will forever be grateful to you and the entire staff at Chandler Regional Hospital for the skills, expert care and repair you performer on my son. Thank you & God Bless You!!!

Caring and gentle style. Most of my time with the Doctor, I was under anesthesia so recollection is limited. The pre-op and followup were informative and my sense was that Dr. Moore was very comfortable with his trade. All questions and concerns were dealt with professionally.
