Dr. Mo has performed 2 spinal fusion surgeries for me. In both , the results have been extraordinary. The most recent has essentially eliminated my back pain. The degree of success is amazing. I recommend him unequivocally

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 enteredthe 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.

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 assessedand 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.

I had an excellent appointment with Dr. Mo. The office is very organized. 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.

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.
