in Philadelphia, PA |
I'll try to kept this condensed as I can. My first contact with Dr. Mooar was a referral from my primary, another 'Temple Physician'. After meeting, had some test done, my appointment at the hospital to have my left knee replaced back in '16 was made. Upon arriving, I was pretty set to go to he OR when the doc came in and said had to cancel because his 'instruments were NOT clean and rescheduled my operation. This led to a fiasco that isn't as important as to the more recent fiasco....ran out..
