I can’t thank Dr. Moskowitz and Dr. Crystal enough for giving me a new life. After suffering for 7 years with ulcerative colitis my life was nothing more than house bound. In 1992, I took a chance on these two wonderful surgeons who performed a colectomy w/anastomosis, basically a new operation at the time, which gave me my life back. 27 years later I am healthy, happy and life could not be any better. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! So very grateful.

Dr Moskowitz performed his services with professionalism and skill. My case was not exactly straight forward due to other issues unrelated to the emergency surgery and corrective surgery that was required. The outcome of it all was positive. Dr Moskowitz is clearly a skilled surgeon who I entrusted with handling my case. He delivered. I can and do recommend Dr Moskowitz for his skill and for the positive results he brought to me. I would return to Dr Moskowitz again.

This Guy has no respect for anyone's time. The first time I went to him I sat in the office for 3 hours. They take the co-pay as soon as you get there and once they have your money they let you sit until you go crazy. The second time he cancelled my appointment even though I told him I was in serious pain. The third visit I sat there for 2 hour and decided this guy stinks. Only care about money. The epitome of a bad doctor. That is not even the treatment. He will string you along. don

The worst, most unprofessional bedside manner I have ever experienced. Do not see him unless you want to be belittled and degraded.

After seen other specialists in the field I can say that Dr. Moskovitz is your best bet. He does not run a conveyor belt operation like all other surgeons but rather takes time to figure out the problem.
