I have worked in PT for over 30 years so I know when I am being bs’d by a doctor. Dr Moore had already reviewed my x-rays and files so he was able to instantly identify my issue. He knew exactly where I was feeling discomfort/pain. He presented the facts in a no nonsense format, he offered his opinions and the options available to me. He is very professional and has a fabulous personality. I have known and worked with hand surgeons that were aloof and arrogant. Dr. Moore is neither. I dislike that I will now be the patient, but I am confident in my choice of hand surgeons to perform the intricate, delicate operation I need to have done.

Doc Moore is simply a top of the line surgeon. Did a shoulder replacement for my wife that was very well done. She's doing great. He will be repairing my torn rotator cuff in a couple of weeks. Stay tuned.

Dr Moore basically saved me. I have been in excruciating pain for 3 years .I tore my tendon off the bone in my arm. He performed surgery and has me back on track to living a normal life again. It hasn't been an easy process but Dr Moore and his staff have been amazing and very attentive to me.

This was only my initial visit but the staff was attentive and caring. Dr Moore is a very likeable person. He answered all questions with ease and clearly explained the process on what our plan of action will be to address my issue. I am very happy to have him as my doctor, or should I say to be working with him because that is how it felt.

I was in an accident at work and cut all my tendons on my right hand and broke my thumb. Dr. Moore successfully reconnected all my tendons and fixed my thumb. Five weeks after surgery I am astonished at how much movement I have back in my hand. In my opinion there is not a better hand surgeon in eastern North Carolina!!

Offered less invasive solution to arthritis in my hand. Surgery may be necessary in the future but for now injections will be adequate he believes.

I recently scheduled my fourth surgery with Dr. Moore. My first was in 2008. I have complete confidence in his skills and have had excellent care and follow up from his entire team. Anyone who asks about my experience gets the same answer. I don’t think there is a better surgeon in the region for shoulder and hand issues. I am a professional musician and my hands are an extension of my instruments.

I really liked dr. Moore. He was very knowledgeable and caring. His office takes a very long time to call you back and get you into a room. They are extremely busy and it often takes at least an hour before you actually get called into a room and the doctor comes in. His offices are also a little challenging to find. However, it is worth the effort. But other than that, I have no complaints. I would definitely see him again and recommend him

I would highly recommend Dr Moore, he is not only an excellent surgeon but a really nice person. He has operated on me 4 times with an excellent outcome each time. He did a reverse shoulder replacement on me and I can do everything I could before except put my arm behind my back but I couldn’t do that before from a previous injury. I wish he could do my knee and ankle when the time comes. His staff is very friendly and easy to work with, talk to and efficient. If I could give him 10 stars I would.
