I was suffering from neck pain for years. I tried physical therapy. I took two shots of edpidural injections. None of that helped. Dr. Moazzaz explained my problems to me clearly, he answered my questions fully, and he addressed all of my concerns patiently. The surgery was performed for L4 to L6, & it was a success ! Dr. Moazzaz is more than a great doctor. He is a caring, kind, & gentle person, that shines through his work. The nurse is always courteous, I couldn't ask for a better team.

Neck broke, spinal cord and nerves compression, damaged disks, and sciatica pain was my companion 24/7, I was a mess. Several surgical procedures, some robotic at Tri City Medical, I have a renewed outlook on living. My wife and I now looking forward to retirement where we plan on travel, riding bikes, hiking, zip lining, etc. Dr. Moazzaz is truly passionate about his profession, exceptionally skilled and a very caring physician, I would not hesitate recommending to family and friends.

Dr. Moazzas answered all of my questions and discussed the x-rays and the results, which showed a complete success. He spent as much time with me as I needed during every appointment. His staff continued to warmly welcome us. Dr. Moazzas provided practical strategies during the surgery recovery and demonstrated that I was a person, and just a "number". What a refreshing experience. I was so satisfied, I was immediately recommending him and his staff to others. I received the best care possible.

Accepts patients by insurance he accepts. Demands kickback payment in the thousands just to submit your surgical request to the insurance he accepts. Like most patients, it takes a long time to finally meet with the surgeon and makes plans to get better. This guy might have a decent surgical record, but to illegally charge insured patients hefty fees of $3000 just to submit their urgent surgical case to insurance for pre authorization for insurance he accepts, then drops you when you refuse

An OUTSTANDING success! Dr. Moazzaz performed two spinal fusions, L4-L5, L5-S1, and a laminectomy. Arrived Friday morning 7:00 am for surgery. Woke up that afternoon, walked the hallway around 4:00pm--PAIN-FREE! Dr. Moazzaz always answered my questions, shared his knowledge about my condition, and the procedure. I always felt informed about my care. Debbie, his assistant, was patient, kind, terrific! Incredibly thankful for this successful surgery, and the gifted Dr. Moazzaz!

This doctor was outstanding! Little or no pain after major back surgery. Recovery time was remarkable. A year out from the surgery doing fine and problems resolved. If I had do do it over again he would be my choice.
