Dr. Moise is a highly skilled neurosurgeon who is also caring, patient, and personable. He clearly explains the problem, solution, and the details of how he will heal his patient including patiently answering all of your questions. He and his staff (Lindsay, Ann) walk you through the whole surgical procedure including pre-op, the operation, post-op, and home care. I highly recommend Dr. Moise.

Dr. Moise is the most caring and attentive surgeon I have ever known! He did not want me to rush and have surgery. He wanted to exhaust all non-invasive options first. His nurse Lindsay and staff at his office have been amazing and supportive by monitoring my progress before and after my surgery. Anything that I needed help with was promptly accommodated!!! I went away on vacation, came back with severe pain and was admitted to the hospital. During my hospital visit, I was seen by Dr. Moise and his amazing team. It was at that point that he decided to do surgery. The day of my surgery, Dr. Moise and I spoke, and he assured me everything would be okay, and it was! It has been over a year since my surgery, and I feel absolutely amazing. I personally have never seen a doctor and staff that are so AMAZING. Thank you all!!!!!

Dr Moise is the most caring doctor I have ever known! He wasn’t even on call and read my MRI. I have been seeing him since June 2020. He didn’t want me to rush and have surgery so I tried all my other options first. His nurse and staff have been amazing anything that I needed help with you didn’t even have to ask!! The entire time he has been so supportive and wanted to be kept posted on my progress. Once we decided on surgery his nurse Lindsay took care of everything and all the pre surgery items that needed to be done. Once surgery day came when I saw Dr Moise and we spoke he assured me everything would be okay and it was! I personally have never seen a doctor and staff that are so AMAZING!

Dr. Moise saw me for low back and leg pain and said he could do minimally invasive surgery cleaning around the nerve and then for no reason other than I was high risk refused to operate. He is a phony. I was not high risk at all but his blowing me off has put me in a category of being at risk. Stay away from Smiling Moise!

Dr. Moise is an amazing surgeon who demonstrates the characteristics of a caring and trusting physician. He is a great listener, a wonderful communicator and always has a positive attitude. Dr. Moise not only gave me options but was very involved in the decision making process. For example, in my experience it is a rare commodity to find a doctor who reviews x-rays and MRIs in great detail. In my opinion, it is very essential to have a doctor who has your best interest at heart. Dr. Moise also has an exceptional staff that supports him. Whenever I called or left a message, someone always returned my call which is very important to me especially during an emergency. I highly recommend Dr. Moise to anyone who seeks personalized healthcare.

Dr. Moise saved my life in July, 2013 performing a clamping and craniotomy on a leaking brain anuerysm. I flew up from Florida this November and he performed a micro discectomy on my lumbar spine.. Dr Moise not only saved my life, he vastly improved the quality for which I am forever grateful.

Dr. Moise was so patient with me as it took me a year to decide to have surgery. He spent time showing me what was wrong with my thoracic spine. After he did surgery on my T10-T11, my pain was totally eradicated. I thank God for this wonderful, kind, and talented neurosurgeon.

Dr. Moise is one of the kindest doctors I’ve ever met! He has a calming demeanor and thoroughly explains everything, taking the time to help you understand. I had terrible pain from a herniated disc in my neck and I’m so grateful to have had him as my neurosurgeon! He effortlessly bridged the gap between my anxiety about surgery and having surgery. I’m currently on the mend and I’m so thankful that he was recommended to me! He really is deserving of your trust!

Dr. Moise peformed a same day surgery on my mother. She woke up in recovery with no feeling/ numbness in her leg from knee down ( this was NOT present before surgery). After 8 weeks and additional imaging he recommended an additional surgery to see if it would improve the lack of feeling/ numbness in her leg. It is approximately 1 year post 2nd surgery and she has never regained feeling and is now crippled for the rest of her life. I will never forgive him for ruining her quality of life!!

I am 8 weeks post L4/L3 laminectomy. To say I am 100% satisfied would be an understatement. Before the surgery I had deteriorated to the point where I was on the verge of taking a seat in a wheel chair. As a former decathlete, this was an especially devastating option. The procedure Dr. Moise performed resulted in immediate relief. As for Dr. Moise's approach, he exudes confidence in a caring manner. No question goes answered as he guides the patients in deciding their own course of action.

Dr. Moise thoroughly explained my medical condition, current symptoms (and what to watch for as the disease progressed), and both the short- and long-term prognosis for various treatment options. I ultimately underwent cervical discectomy and fusion. He and his team provided detailed information to me and my spouse on what to expect before/during/after surgery. The office staff was caring, professional, and courteous. I highly recommend Dr. Moise and his team!

I HIGHLY recommend Dr.Moise! He is caring and compassionate beyond words. He took the time to listen. He surgically corrected my Grade 2+ L4-L5 Spondylolisthesis (slippage of vertebrae) six months ago. Five weeks after the surgery at Valley Hospital, Ridgewood NJ I was taking no pain medication and returned to work 9 weeks after surgery! His level of expertise is so impressive and I truly believe his hands are blessed by God! His ofice staff is tops and also compassionate and caring.
