I have had a great experience with Dr. Moore and his staff. He made the effort to treat my fast growing lung cancer quickly and since it was removed before it spread, helped me avoid chemotherapy.

Very pleasant. His office staff was great, but his surgical PA, Julie, was very, very unpleasant, almost threatening. I would not return to this practice in large part because of her.

Liked him initially, but with more contact found him very paternalistic, almost condescending. His surgical PA Julie was borderline abusive, arrogant and lacking in basic compassion. Will not return to this practice in large part because of Julie.
