She listens to what you have to say and then explains what she feels needs to be done I had 3 trigger fingers 2 fingers on one hand and one on the other had cortisone shots done once she explained what I will experience with the shot will be over in 3 secs, it was painful also explained she can do surgery. The one shot has lasted 6 mons or more I will go back to get another shot. had carpel tunnel on both hands, did explain symptoms might go away the reason keep from getting worse

Very through in the way she explained the whole process from surgery thru the healing process. Would recommend her in a moment she actually cared about your concerns and took the time to answer them

Dr. Mo has performed three separate surgeries on my right hand over the past few years to correct residual damage due to rheumatoid arthritis. I cannot say enough about how great she is a surgeon. She is extremely thoughtful and comprehensive in her evaluation, explains treatment options very thoroughly and most importantly, she is a very skilled surgeon. I have had better than expected results with each surgery. I highly recommend her.

Was disappointed that I couldn't be seen for 3 weeks (or 4 weeks in my preferred location) but was very happy with Dr. Mo and her staff. I injured my thumb 5 weeks earlier, had xrays done elsewhere and was told no fracture was seen. Dr. Mo saw the fracture on the original xrays and took new xrays to check the progress of the healing. She explained the injury clearly, gave me a paper copy of the images and answered all my questions.

Not honest-gives a diagnosis if she sees u have insurance that targets joint replacement or operation both which severely limit ur activities 4 the rest of ur life. She made the completely false statement that u can't get more than 2 cortisone shots per joint because they deteriorate joint cartilage. After the 2nd shot an operation (big dollars for her!) is necessary. When I went for stem cell therapy also found out I had fluid in joints that if she had drained would have reduced pain & swelling

She was compassionate, gentle, super friendly, explained everything clearly, took time with me and my symptoms. I've had enough times and interaction with her ( not just one time visit ) to think she is truly incredible and patient as a doctor. I do not even recognize the actual person with the negative reviews I see on this site. Think she is one of the best specialists I've ever met. The entire practice is fantastic. My family has gone for various reason through the years.

She was VERY condescending. Acted like I was wasting her precious time and was almost snide about it. I had lost the use of my hand due to pain, was not able to hold an empty coffee cup, yet she looked at my x-ray report and scowled that I had arthritis - end of discussion. Nothing about what I could do to help it, no help at all. Spent 5 minutes with me, and walked out.
