Dr. Moores is fantastic. Multiple doctors have reviewed our daughter's before and after MRIs and commented on Dr. Moores' remarkable performance with her surgery. He and his staff helped make an otherwise terrifying experience manageable for our family - helping us understand the procedure, easing our nerves and making our daughter laugh in the midst of it all.
