Dr. Moucha, while certainly knowledgeable, does not take the time to read the medical background of patients, and treats them like widgets on a conveyor belt instead of people with potentially complex backgrounds or medical issues. He has made a conscious decision that patients are not worth listening to regarding their own bodies and does not always make the most appropriate decisions for them-- for me, for example, he did not listen when I indicated that prior orthopedic surgeons had attempted a certain imaging strategy multiple times and it had never worked and that there was an alternative approach they had all independently settled on using; he instead ordered the imaging and I was shuffled around three different times in radiology trying to have the imaging completed, to no avail. He then decided that perhaps after wasting most of one of my afternoons when I needed to be at work on that useless imaging attempt, the approach that the other doctors had used and that I had told him about early on in the process was appropriate and I should go back into radiology to have that done. I understand that as a doctor, Dr. Moucha has significant knowledge and experience that I will never have; however, his insistence that my comments were unreliable or useless resulted in a significant waste of time and resources for myself and for Mt. Sinai.

Everyone at Dr. Moucha's office was professional and friendly. There was a slight delay when I got there and everyone, from the receptionist, to Dr. Moucha's physician's assistant to Dr. Moucha himself offered their apologies. Dr. Moucha took a lot of time with me to explain my condition and my treatment options.

Dr Moucha is a very intelligent and compassionate doctor. He wasn't the exact physician I needed to see for my problem, but he referred me to a colleague right away, pushed for an appointment via email, CCing me, and he sent me for a diagnostic test anyway to take with me to my visit. Great experience!

He's the best HIP Doc in the City. if you dont see him for your hip pain, you're going to the minor leagues. Doc Moucha is a rock start and an all star i had hip surgery and i walked out of the hospital in 3 days. I was also back to running 3 miles in 45 days. you may not getthe kind of results i got, but hey, I'm only 68 yrs old :-)

I would see Dr Moucha in a heartbeat,had hip replacement surgery on July 8th and walked, that's right, walked out of the hospital, no cane, no walker, just feet on July 11th. The Doc is amazing. I texted him at 1130pm one night and he responded instantly. The man is a gem, a highly skilled and well respected surgeon by patients and peers and if you need hip or knee replacement; he is the MAN :))))) No ifs, and or butts. And if you go somewhere else, well, you're just crazy!

Dr. Moucha diagnosed my problem in just a couple of minutes. He had good bedside manner in easing my fears (I worked myself up to the worst possible scenario), which turned out to be something very manageable. He didn't push for a treatment one way or another, just offered the results of previous patients, and let me decide. I've already told a couple of my colleagues about my experience, and they took Dr. Moucha's name for their own consultations.
