I saw Dr. Moran because I was having some chest and arm pain. He performed and EKG and was able to tell from the results that I had likely suffered a heart attack 4-6 weeks prior. He decided not to run a stress test on me because he was concerned that I would not survive it. He scheduled an angiogram for the very next morning. I could not have asked for better care. He is super smart and super attentive to his patients. See Dr. Moran and you will not be disappointed.

Dr. Michael Moran has been instrumental in the care of my daughter who at the young age of 25 was hospitalized with congestive heart failure with an ejection fraction of only 20%. Both Dr. Moran and his office staff were solely responsible for successfully surmounting medical insurance hurdles and my daughter was able to start taking the medication she needed and her heart is back to normal. I will forever be grateful to Dr. Moran and his staff for their excellent care, advice and determina

My wife and I have been receiving the absolute best internal/cardiac care from Mike Moran for the past 18 years. I've been to many other cardiologists over the years (I'm 72) and Dr. Moran's knowledge, bedside manner, method of treatment and depth of caring ranks at the top of all doctors. He will give us whatever time is required to properly diagnose or solve any potential problems. He is always available and returns phone calls quickly. He is responsible for my continued good health

Dr. Moran is very intelligent and knows his stuff. If you need a Cardiologist I would highly recommend him. He has cared for our family for a while now and goes beyond the basic standards to make sure we stay healthy and our future healthy is on the right path. Not to many doctors today take the time to explain "Why" your need to take care of your heart and health. He is very rare in todays world.

Unlike the person below, I really wish I had listened to Dr. Moran 8 years ago when he told me I had “pre-diabetes”, but I also didn’t want to believe it. Now, after a four vessel bypass, a “scraped” out carotid artery and the loss of three of my toes, I SURE wish I had listened to him eight years ago! He is a man ahead of his times! Unfortunately, many don’t want to hear what he has to say, like me!

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.

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
