After two highly successful back surgeries involving spinal fusions, I can attest that Dr. Moore is an exceptionally talented surgeon. He successfully analyzed and diagnosed my situations, developed an understandable plan and implemented it flawlessly. He communicates very well - before and after the procedure.

I went into Dr. Moore’s in excruciating pain, he quickly reviewed my mri and sent me to the hospital to do surgery the next day. He replaced two disk between L4, L5 and L5, S1. I was worried about surgery at first but Dr. Moore assured me I’ll be fine and he told the absolute truth I feel amazing now with no pain I wish I came to Dr. Moore sooner. I’m so thankful to be able to move anyway I need with zero pain. Dr. Moore is an amazing surgeon and would strongly recommend him to any friend or family member.

Caroline Gilligan – Nov 03, 2020
I'm an anesthesiologist and I approached having back surgery with extreme caution after having given anesthesia for many such procedures and seeing patients return for additional surgeries. Let it be said I never worked with Dr. Moore. I finally gave in to surgery when I couldn't walk a half block without stopping because of the back pain. I met Dr. Moore and felt very comfortable with him as my surgeon. My surgery, L4-5 decompression and fusion, was 4 1/2 months ago. Recovery was uneventful. I went back to a light work schedule 5 weeks postop. Today I'm pain-free and living my normal life, including working full time. I'm thrilled with my result, and very grateful to Dr. Moore for his knowledge, skill, and compassion. I recommend him to anyone needing a consultation and surgery for back symptoms.

Stephanie Hellpap in Hackensack, NJ – Jan 19, 2018
Dr Moore gave it to me straight and took the time to answer each and every one of the many questions my wife and I threw his way. He calmed our nervous energy through kind words, professionalism, and confidence. Only a few days after my cervical disectomy with fusion and instrumentation, I felt like a million bucks and had a range of motion that I had not experienced in some time. Dr Moore demonstrated the same calming, caring and confidence from day one to the road to recovery.

Paul Api in Yonkers, NY – Jul 18, 2017
I barely was able to walk into Dr Moore's office due to excruciating back pain; I had barely lifted my head to eat in days but within moments of meeting Doctor Moore & his staff, it was like magic. I was treated as tenderly, gently & with such sincere concern that as a mother of 3, I inherently knew I would be alright. It has been 6 weeks since my spinal fusion & every single step I've taken since has been with renewed strength & assurance that there are doctors who care. My family thanks you :)
