Don't see this doctor! He thinks he is a endocrinologist. He falsely diagnosed me w/ diabetes w/o running the proper tests. He consulted w/ another endocrinologist over the phone w/ me in the room. They were congratulating themselves. So unprofessional! He even had the nerve to give me medicine & told me I needed to start it right away. He knows I have my own endo and my endo confirmed that I don't have diabetes. I came to him for a heart problem and all he cared about was my sugar levels.

Horrible doctor!

I saw Dr. Moran when experiencing chest pain. Without doing ANY diagnostic tests, not even an EKG, he told me that I should get in my car and drive to Saddleback Hospital to schedule surgery to have a stent placed. He said that I was "in stage 3 heart failure." I asked how he knew, and he told me he "is an expert." I saw another doctor for a second opinion. Chest pain was resolved with an antacid. Battery of tests show no heart problems. DO NOT SEE MORAN. HE'S A QUACK! Check his education, etc.

Dr Moran is knowledgeable and stays up to date in all areas of Cardiac medicine. He is supportive and a positive force to his patients and their families. He has improved my quality of life by teaching and helping me understand my health issues. He does not just treat me and expect me to know what to do-we are a team and he guides me every step of the way. I wish I had him as my doctor twenty years ago! I'd be a lot healthier-But I am pleased to have him now. Dr Moran is the BEST!

Needed to have an echo done before starting chemotherapy. AFTER the test was done, the staff & Dr. Moran demanded that I pay a "co-pay", in order to get the echo report. I explained that I have a PPO, and don't ever pay a co-pay. That I always wait until I get the EOB from my insurance company, and then I pay the provider what is stated on the EOB. The EOB now shows the amount due Dr. Moran from me is zero. I offered to scan & e-mail the EOB, they refused, and hung up on me. DON'T GO THERE
A patently false and derogatory review by a bitter and angry patient. She was rude and abusive to the staff. I NEVER even spoke to NOR saw this patient, she only came in for an Echo., which was COMPLETED exactly 21 minutes after her scheduled appt. (NOT 45 minutes!!). Her PPO showed a co-pay, which she deducted from the 500.00 check she brought in to make a PAYMENT on her husband's 10 month old 1,150.00 outstanding balance, which was refunded back to his acct. This review is WAY out of line!!
