Are you a patient of Rachel Moore, MD?
5 out of 5 stars Weight Loss
Dr. Moore is one of the nicest surgeons I have ever met. She takes time with you and shows real concern for her patients. She willingly answers all of your questions and you don't feel like she inching her way out the door while you are trying to get information. She has not performed my surgery yet but I feel very confident in her ability.
I love using my skills as a bariatric surgeon to empower my patients to change their lives, to restore their confidence and to save them from the damage that obesity does to their health.
