I am blessed that i went to Dr. James Moody. He has a servant's heart. I had foramen magnum chiari decompression in October of 2016. I am what you would say outside of conventional medical wisdom. He cares greatly, for his patients.

I did my research on Neuro Surgeons in the DFW area and spoke to dozens of people over the last several years. Dr. Moody operated on my neck and my wife's! With out a doubt...he is the best of the best in his field. Great Doctor!
