Dr. Mora's Care Philosophy
I hope to create a close patient-doctor relationship based on trust and mutual respect. I believe my patients' medical treatment begins with their complete understanding of their condition. I believe that a patient can never be given too much accurate and useful information. With this in mind, I make every effort to first and foremost- listen to my patient. Then I spend the time necessary to educate them on every detail of the treatment plan. Lastly I am dedicated towards maintaining my orthopaedic knowledge and expertise as cutting edge as possible. I am dedicated to solving problems that cause pain."
