Ratings for Dr. Robert D. Moore
After two 10lb babies and a very active lifestyle, at 67 years old, I suffered from pelvic organ prolapse. Non-surgical remedies did not work, which meant surgery loomed on the horizon. My ob-gyn wasn’t experienced with cystocele (bladder protrusion) repair and recommended I find a board certified urogynecologist. There were none in my immediate area, but I found Drs Miklos and Moore in Atlanta. They had the education, certifications, and experience I was looking for. Although I was terrified at the extent of surgery needed (cystocele repair, vaginal repair, and hysterectomy), it was easy to see everyone in the office really knew what they were doing. Dr. Moore does not use robotic surgery, as it really isn’t needed for this type of surgery. Further he feels the use of robotics doubles the time the patient is under anesthesia which presents its own set of concerns. From there we chatted about studies relating to the best techniques and materials – I had a lot of questions, and Dr. Moore was willing to spend for long as I needed. Everyone in the office was great. Dr. Moore's staff helped me coordinate paperwork, insurance, office visits, and surgery. Danielle provided support as she responded within two hours to every email question I had. Prior to surgery, I needed to have a couple of bladder tests. This is when I met Dr. Hawkins. She was calming and efficient, and I was happy to learn both she and Dr. Moore were going to do the surgery together. I was EXTREMELY nervous about the extent of the surgery, but the office was prepared for pre-op jitters and handled it well. After the surgery (hospital stay of 23 hours), I had 3 tiny incisions in my abdomen that were glued, not stitched. I was up and walking the halls a few hours later. I went home, and within three days, I did not even need pain meds. Now, 12 weeks later, I feel completely normal and suffered no complications. Even better, the surgery completely resolved my pelvic organ prolapse, and I’m able to resume my active life. I can’t thank Dr. Moore and Dr. Hawkins (and Danielle) enough. The experience and results surpassed my (and my husband’s) expectations.
Dr Moore is one of the greatest doctor I have ever had! For months I was suffering from incontinence due to a vesicovaginal fistula after an open hysterectomy. I found Dr Moore via the Internet and I wrote him few questions on how to repair it in which he replied with miles of details. He gave me confidence that he's the doctor for me and thus I booked the surgery with him. As l lived in Hong Kong (China) I did not know what to do and where to stay in Atlanta, his staff arranged everything for me . So from Hong Hong to Atlanta my husband and I went for my surgery in Aug 2010. Dr Moore and his staff were wonderful and kind to us. The surgery was superbly performed and I received the best care possible. Now nearly 5 years after, I continue to enjoy good health and wonderful living. Thank you Dr Moore and your staff for restoring my health!
Dr. Moore is a great compassionate doctor. He not only spent a lot of time with me in the office but his bedside manner after surgery was comforting. After years of pain I am finally able to be active again. Thank you Dr. Moore for giving me my life back.
The staff was very welcoming and comforting which made the procedure much easier. They were efficient in explaining the steps of testing that had to be done and working around my work schedule, especially being I was out of state. The doctor was extremely knowledgeable, he spent time with me and my husband explaining the procedure. He showed visual pictures which made it easier to understand the surgery. The doctor was very compassionate toward my concerns. I appreciate the time the doctor and staff had spent with myself and husband. It made the experience very pleasurable, I would recommend anyone to see this doctor the surgery was a success.
I found Dr. Moore and his staff to be EXCELLENT. I had an operation over 2 years ago and his staff still call to see how I am doing. I originally found Dr. Moore after researching procedures through the internet and then communicated via email. After reviewing my records Dr. Moore's staff helped me coordinate paperwork, insurance, office visits, surgery, travel, hotel & even a nurse to check on me once I got home since I was out-of-state (FL). Dr. Moore & Dr. Milkos laparoscopically repaired a vesco-vaginal fistula which resulted from a previous hysterectomy performed by a Dr. in Orlando FL. I had several procedures done by several Dr.s in Florida after the hysterectomy which worsened my condition and I was about to give up before I found Dr. Moore. I thank God every day for finding Dr. Moore and for the successful operation that finally brought my life back to normal. Dr. Moore and Dr. Miklos including their professional staff are in a league of their own.
Dr. Moore was very mean and arrogant to me. Every follow up appointment I had was canceled. He seemed very annoyed at my questions and made me feel ignorant, if I did not understand what he was telling me. His inability to answer my questions in a way that I could understand made me lack confidence in his abilities as a physician. I felt his rudeness to me was very personal. He seems to value patients that are nurses or doctors which would explain the positive comments from the nurses. I was just a lay person and of no significance in the eyes of Dr. Moore.
Dr. Moore is an excellent doctor. I had my first visit with him in January 09' after going from doctor to doctor to find the source of the continual pain that I had been in for a while. He spoke with me for about 30 minutes before the exam and then over an hour after the exam, explaining in detail what was going on with me. I'm 54 years old, and I've never been to a doctor that spent that amount of time talking to me! He wrote down my diagnosis and drew pictures and diagrams to show me what was going on. It turned out that I had multiple problems causing the pain. I had surgery in March, four weeks ago. I feel amazing already, and for the first time in a long time I have hope for the future, all because of Dr. Moore and his surgical expertise. I should also mention his office staff (all of them), who are amazing. They have returned every call, answered every (multiple)question, and have the best attitude of any office I've ever been to. I highly recommend this practice.
