Verified Patient Reviews
I arrived 15 minutes prior to my scheduled appointment to fill in the New Patients Forms, called into the interior doctor/patient office even before I was able to fully complete the forms, waited there just moments before Dr. Mo's PA entered the room, recorded my background information, then escorted for X-Rays. Dr. Mo met with me immediately thereafter, spent a considerable amount of time with me, thoughtfully and thoroughly answered my list of questions. After interviewing many spine surgeons, I feel most confident moving forward with with Dr. Mo.for my scoliosis and stenosis surgery.
I absolutely love Dr Mo. He is so smart and has a wonderful beside manner. Had surgery with him once and all future back surgeries will be with him.
Explained my complicated back problem very well. Gave me basic options and his recommendation. Answered all questions. Felt comfortable with Dr. Mo as a medical professional. If I do elect surgery, I would select him as my surgeon .
Dr. Mo was excellent. He did not disregard my pain as irrelevant and decided to initiate further testing to get to the root of my problem. Additionally, he explained how the previous information in which I received was inaccurate.
My situation is complex, involving positional pain resulting from prior lumbar laminectomy and fusion by a different surgeon, subsequent scar tissue formation, and newly developed neuropathies in my ankles and feet. Dr. Mo quickly assessed and understood the situation, formed a reasonable hypothesis, and ordered the requisite imaging to confirm. I have complete confidence in whatever treatment Dr. Mo may recommend based on the imaging.
Dr. Mo was knowledgeable and attentive. I went to him for a second opinion and he uncovered a diagnosis others has missed. Precisely what I was looking for.
Very accessible doctor, I would absolutely go to him again

I was seen very close to my appointment time, there was very little wait time for my X-Ray and it was done in an efficient professional manner. Dr. Mo took time with me to review the results of the X-Ray and discuss my options. He answered all my questions and we worked out a treatment plan.

It was fast and easy and too the point... Thank you
The wait was long at this appointment, but not at the last. It was not the doctor's fault. Apparently, scheduling overbooked the patients. Bottom line, it was well worth the wait.
Awesome. Seems very thorough. I know he was running behind well worth the wait. I have confidence he will figure out what is wrong with me and get it fixed.
