SHOCKING EXPERIENCE!!! I tried for three weeks to see Dr. Moon. I was given the run-around by a very abusive and callous office manager Jeanie and Francesca (scheduler) who insisted that I was not covered under my insurance plan. Instead of apologizing for the confirmed mistake, the conversation escalated when she told me that she didn’t like my tone and that the doctor will NOT see me!! This is a travesty of the Hippocratic Oath? - you may see the full details on yelp!

My client who was in great pain tried for 3 wks to receive treatment fr Dr. Moon. The office manager, Jeannie, & her side kick Francesca, continued to obstruct my client from seeing the doctor insisting he was not cov'd under her ins. After 3 weeks they referred her to their ins biller who confirmed he WAS covered. Jeannie, without confirming with her own biller, demanded payment in full & when proven wrong refused to allow her to see or speak to Dr. stating "We" have decided not to treat her

Dr. Moon is an outstanding physician both professional and personable. He was in charge of my pain care for over a decade and he and his staff handled everything at all times entirely appropriately. I do not hesitate to endorse him.

DR. MOON HAS A TERRIBLE BEDSIDE MANNER. HE HAS LOST ALL EMPATHY AND HAS FORGOTTEN HIS HIPPOCRATIC OATH. HE REALLY SHOULD RECONSIDER REMAINING IN THE MEDICAL FIELD AS THE MEDICAL FIELD HAS CHANGED BUT DR MOON'S ATTITUDES AND QUALITY OF TREATMENT HAVE GONE BY THE WAYSIDE. ITS SAD TO SEE AN INTELLIGENT PERSON TREAT PATIENTS SO POORLY. HIS OFFICE STAFF ARE PART TIME WORKERS THAT DO FULL TIME WORK. HE RARLY FOLLOWS UP WITH HIS PATIENTS AT HOME. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND DR MOON.

Mr. Moon is a kind, caring, competent physician who understands RSD/CRPS and treats his patients with great grace. I'd recommend him to anyone. Thanks, Dr. Moon.
