Dr. Joseph Moore graduated from the University of Virginia School of Medicine in 1982 and started a Navy career that spanned over 30 years. While doing his Family Medicine Residency at the Naval Hospital at Camp Pendleton, CA, he realized the principles of Sports Medicine could more quickly return injured Marines back to full duty. The key principal was early access for injuries, similar to an urgent care model. After his family medicine training, he completed a sports medicine fellowship and worked with the US Olympic Teams in Colorado Spring, was team physician at World Youth Game in Moscow in 1995 and team doctor to the USA Women’s Ice Hockey team before the Nagano Games in 1998. He started the Navy’s Sports Medicine program at Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton to train Navy Sports Medicine doctors. The community has gone on to develop over 22 Navy sports medicine clinics both stateside and overseas. Dr. Moore is a clinical instructor at UCSD School of Medicine and lectures at the American Academy of Family Physicians’ National Meeting. He is an ordained Roman Catholic Deacon, and he and his wife of over 30 years, Laura, have four adult children.
Verified Patient Reviews
Absolutely the most professional, sympathetic, kindest, knowledgeable doctor I've been to in all of San Diego. I've spent 4 years looking for "my" doctor, and have definitely found one with Dr. Moore.
He was a bit late that morning, but he was very apologetic. Made every accommodation for the situation that put me in. Despite the inital inconvenience, I will be coming back.
Dr. Moore has a great bedside manner. He is very professional and spent a sufficient amount of time to diagnose my condition.
