09/06/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Moynihan is the best surgeon I could have found. I thank God that I was able to have him as my surgeon. He quieted my spirited, which prior to surgery is most important. The surgery went without a problem and I was and am cured thanks to him.

18/05/11 5 5 5 5 I have been seeing Dr. Moynihan off and on for almost 20 years, more so in the last 5 years. I have hidradenitis supervia which he has helped me deal with, performing at least 5 surgeries. He also performed my husband's umbilical hernia last year. He is wonderful. His bedside manner excellent, he doesn't talk over your head, skils are outstanding, very friendly, and more! I love the staff at his Annandale office. I can't say enough good things about him! If you have a choice, go with Dr. Moynihan!! He is the BEST!  Respond

19/05/09 5 5 5 5 I needed to have an apendectomy last week, and Dr. Moynihan was the surgeon on call. He came into the hospital at midnight to do my surgery, and he immediately made me feel comfortable. His bedside manner was excellent. He explained everything to me and kept me calm and reassured. He even just chatted with me about our children for a few minutes while we were waiting for the anesthsiologist to arrive. He made a point to go talk to my husband immediately after the surgery to let him know that everything went well and to answer his questions. I feel very lucky that he was the surgeon on call that night and recommend him highly.

25/10/06 5 5 5 I was recently referred to Dr. Moynihan for thyroid surgery. I have not yet had the surgery performed, but during my first appointment with him he was very knowledgable, kind and helpful. He reviewed my pathology report (from a biopsy performed by a different doctor) with me and clearly discussed my options. I will write more after I have my surgery.  Respond

04/10/06 5 5 5 Dr. Moynihan was excellent! He spent time explaining the procedure and made me feel very comfortable throughout the whole process. The surgery (Sigmoid Resection) was a complete success and has greatly improved my life. My recovery has been brief and flawless, no pain and I am feeling excellent. Dr. Moynihan has an excellent staff both in the office as well as assisting him during surgery. His office staff was very helpful and efficient sorting out all administrative paperwork and his nursing staff was excellent both during surgery as well as following up during recovery with daily calls ensuring I was doing fine at home. Nobody wants to undergo surgery and I am no exception, however, if you have to do it do not hesitate to consult with Dr. Moynihan – he is an excellent professional and a great human being.
