Terrible bedside manner. Didn't even shut the door to examine me. Didn't listen to my concerns. Didn't order any tests or therapy, only offered a shot. I wanted to fix my problem, not cover it up! Would never see him again nor recommend him to anyone else.

I did not feel as though I gained much insight in regards to my MRI. Dr. Moorthy kept cutting me off, and made me feel like I was wasting his time. I ended up having to ask him to tell me what specifically was wrong with my ankle because he did not tell me.
