Patient Comments (5)
Newport Beach, CA |
Avoid this doctor. His office is a money making factory. The nurse took me into a room to put my basic info in the computer. Before the doctor saw me or my chart, I was moved into another room for an x-ray. I then saw the doctor after that who told me he couldn’t help. He was extremely arrogant with horrible bedside manner. The entire appointment including the x-ray was no more than 25 min. A huge disappointment and waste of time.

I was having problems with both of my wrists because of carpel tunnel syndrome. I saw Dr. Moskow regarding the problem and he recommended surgery. Dr. Moskow operated on both of my wrists. The surgeries were approximately 18 months apart. Both surgeries went well. In each surgery the process was very easy and there was no pain afterward. Both surgery sites healed well. The results from both surgeries are very good. I recommend that you consider Dr. Moskow if you need to have surgery.

Good doc, but not happy about giving me a xiaflex injection instead of hand surgery for my dupredynes contraction. I felt bad that he was only getting paid for an injection and not hand surgery. I even felt like paying him extra out of pocket after hearing him complain. Then I thought, it's not my fault he's not getting to do full on hand surgery and making bank. I don't write the j codes. All that being said, he did a good job, and I do feel bad that he doesn't get paid more for the injection.

Once Dr. Moskow knows and understands your concern he will share information that may be helpful. Does not always volunteer next steps unless asked. Shows and describes procedures (like xray results) and what the medical concerns are which is helpful.

I thought he was a very warm and caring person and I liked him. His assistant was good also. I thought the front desk could have been not quite so cold and a little more warm atmosphere for a first time but the doctor is the most important.
