This was my first visit with Dr. Moorehead; I had been referred to him by another doctor. He determined that I needed to have a small localized procedure and he went out of his way to ensure he could perform the procedure that day. He is easy to talk to and did a wonderful job.

Dr Moorhead is very personable and kind and has a great 'bedside manner' about him. He was persistent and thorough in my care. I am so grateful I found him to help me deal w/my sinus issues. Thank you, Dr Moorhead!

My son is 3 and has had ear tubes and a tonsillectomy/adenoidectomy from Dr. Moorhead. Both surgeries went very well. He prepared us beforehand and each time all of the things he said would happen in recovery, did happen. This preparation helped us know what to tell our child about the surgery. Dr. Moorhead is very kind, but also has a quiet air of confidence about him. Although surgery on your child is always very scary, knowing you have a good doctor makes a huge difference!

Dr. Moorhead is an excellent surgeon and has great communication skills which helped us come through a surgery for my son's fractured nose.

Dr Morehead is amazing. I had chronic tonsillitis as a kid, but grew up at a time the doctors decided to not remove tonsils anymore, thought that we would outgrow them....not so! I was hospitalized 4 times in last two years for tonsillitis and strept, so out they came about 6 weeks ago. Dr. Morehead is super professional and has excellent bedside manner. The recovery was rough, but Dr. M had set my expectations. Great follow up from his nurses too. Definitely recommend!!!

Dr. Moorhead did an outpatient scope procedure to repair a large Zenkers diverticulum in my throat. The procedure was fast and effective and resulted in really minimal post-op pain; I did not need to use pain medicine at all. I recovered quickly and uneventfully at home. I couldn't have asked for a better outcome. I wouldn't hesitate at all to recommend Dr. Moorhead.
in Houston, TX |
Dr. Moorhead performed my tonsillectomy, and I could not be happier that he was my doctor! He accurately prepared me for what to expect, and although my recovery was nothing out of the ordinary, I know that he would of been there at my beck and call! Dr. Moorhead truly made the painful tonsillectomy better, and I would recommend him to anyone looking for an ENT!
in Houston, TX |
Dr. Moorhead is just wonderful! He ihas always been so gentle with my kids, and takes as much time as you need to understand everything that is happening! My oldest son was plagued with sinus problems and Dr. Moorhead performed surgery on him that allowed him to breathe again. I highly recommend him as a doctor for the whole family!!
in Houston, TX |
There are no words to sufficiently express the trust, graditude, & confidence I have in this outstanding surgeon. Dr. Moorhead not only saved my life, but as a result, gave me back the quality of life that I had started to believe was forever gone. Other ENT docs had incorrectly treated my condition for years, & when I finally found Dr. Moorhead, my condition had deteriorated & I was admitted into the hospital. He did a total parotidectomy & I have no facial nerve damage! I thank God for him!
in Houston |
Dr. Moorhead did a phenomenal job treating me for chronic sinusitis. After a thorough evaluation, it was determined that I would need surgery. He explained every step of the process and made sure that I was comfortable moving forward. The office staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend Dr. Moorhead for any ENT needs
