I had a partial knee replacement 18 months ago, and I am 100 times worse than before the surgery. I can no longer walk, am in a wheelchair, and Dr. Moore does not have a clue what to do about me. He doesn’t seem to care at all. Do NOT go to this doctor!
in Meridian, ID |
Dr. Moore and his staff have been absolutely fantastic. His P.A. and Dr. Moore himself both visited me before and after the surgery. The knee replacement has been much less painful than I expected. I've had sprained ankles that were more debilitating! I have only used Tylenol for pain control and I'm not sure I even needed that. I was walking without a walker or cane three days after surgery and physical therapy is progressing well. Maybe I'm just lucky buy I think it was Dr. Moore.

I interviewed three surgeons for my hip replacement. Dr. Moore was an easy choice. He took the time to answer my questions. Three and half years later, I highly recommend Dr. Moore. If you need joint replacement you need a surgeon that specializes in joint replacement.
La Grande, OR |
Excellent surgeon and made me feel very comfortable with the procedure.

i am a physical therapist and have seen patients from every orthopedist in the valley for over 9 years. when my father in law needed a knee replacement, i recommended Dr Moore. He consistently has the best results
in Baker city or |
Very personable
Boise, ID |
Dr. Moore is an excellent surgeon and I would use him again. He has performed two knee surgeries on me. Getting to see though, is very rare. I had both knees scoped three years ago. I saw him for approx 5 min before the surgery and I've haven't seen him since. I get to see his PA who doesn't really listen and doesn't offer a lot.
Boise, ID |
Not impressed so far. I walked out of my second appointment after waiting more than an hour. Only met him once during pre op appointment. He was 25 minutes late and looking at his watch the entire time. No contact with him on surgery day not even after to tell me how it goes. I'll be looking ales where if I need an ortho in the future.
in Filer, ID |
Dr Moore is by far the best doctor i have been to he takes time to listen to you and explains everything to you ,great personality and his staff member's Tracy and Terra are awesome if you have problems with your knee he's the one for you. The only negative thing i can say is the wait time takes sometime 3 to 4 hours of sitting and waiting they really should offer some protein bars and water you can get real hungry just waiting so maybe bring some snacks.
Eagle, ID |
Just slaps in knee spends no times and doesn't even allow cement to dry. Went to him first time and then got my revision and second one done by Dr. George Nicola. Was like night and day dr Nicola spent a lot of time and actually made sure everything fit and the cement was dry. Dr Moore just cares about seeing as many patients as possible. If looking at this go see dr nicola in meridian or Caldwell unlike Moore you will actually see him and he does a good job
Boise, Idaho |
Dr. Moore is the best surgeon I have ever had and he is very compassionate and after having 16 surgeries and two of them were performed by him and I trust him with everything! Outstanding surgeon
in Hailey, ID |
Dr. Moore is an outstanding surgeon, very experienced and very caring. I have had 2 total knee replacements with Dr. Moore, both very successful. I have recommended Dr. Moore to friends, all of whom have been pleased with his services.
Boise |
For my first visit I didn't see the Dr. I didn't realize I was seeing psychician assistant. He was very good tho. X Ray tech was great.... Wait time was horrendous!!!! Hour and a half to spend 5 min. With assistant.
in Donnelly, ID |
I went in with a smaller problem in the knee and, after he operated, left with a much bigger one! What was supposed to be a diagnostic arthroscopy to evaluate the extent of arthritis for future treatment, turned into a nightmare and left me with a considerably worsened knee, i.e. pain, swelling, and disability I hadn't had before. And its persisted, (its now a year later) I've had to alter my life and activities. I recommend you look elsewhere.
Boise, ID |
Dr Moore replaced my left knee two years ago. I found him to be a kind and decent man who listened to my concerns.
