Ratings for Dr. Richard W. Moos
I have been a patient of Dr. Moos since 2000. He gave me a hysterectomy and a bladder lift at the same time. 14 yrs. later and my bladder is still in perfect condition. I've personally known women that needed 2-3 if not more lifts because they did not have the expertise that Dr. Moos offers. Also, my daughter couldn't get pregnant and tried invetro several times with no success. She almost died on me with her last atopical pregnancy and I took her to see Dr. Moos who immediately diagnosed what was preventing her from getting pregnant. He and his staff are an 11 as far as I'm concerned. Lorna Fiscina
I only went for one appointment and it was the most uncomfortable appointment I've ever had in my life. Even though the doctor had toys on the floor and low for kids, my 3 year old was chastised for touching them. There were creepy clowns everywhere and paperwork piled high everywhere. The actual exam consisted of too many people in the room in what should be a private, respectful environment.
Had a good history with Dr. Moos - he got me through 2 high risk pregnancies with healthy babies.. At the time I was pregnant, his nurse was Rose - wonderful woman. After that, he went through a string of them - I never liked them the way I liked Rose. They were polite, but didn't click with me. I called for my appt this year and found out that he sold his practice to another physician. I wish I had been notified by mail of the office closing - I was able to retrieve my medical records from the new physician's office, but I'm not sure that everyone would know to do this.
He did a hysterectomy on me. At the point of decision on surgery he asked me if I wanted my ovaries removed. I was very uneducated at the time & asked for him to explain pros & cons. He said you don't need them & most of the time if you get ovarian cancer it is too late. So I agreed to a complete hysterectory. Well after surgery I was a mess. He then after a followup & me asking if we could adjust my meds, told me do what ever you want with the meds, I don't care! I changed drs immediately. He was not caring at all not looking me in the eye and talking to me and asking my husband if I had been like this (crying after got out of hospital after surgery) instead of asking me was ridiculous. I have told many people my story and who he is. They cannot believe he said and did this with me. UGH! Also at one point had a biopsy done of my uterous and he told me it would not hurt. It did hurt & he acted like I was crazy. Nurse did not even hold my hand or try to help/comfort me.
I CAN NOT understand why anyone would ever give this doctor or his office good ratings! When you walk in DONT EVER expect a smile from the stuck up woman that is front! You wait in a very old and poorly furnished un-cozy. The one and only COLD nurse calls you back with no smile or "hi how are you". Moos comes in a while after you sit and wait for him Never ONCE asks how are you? How are you feeling? Hows the baby? makes his assessment with his BACK TURNED TO YOU never once making eye contact. NO ?'s answered! He didn't even turn around to look at me when I was talking.. just continued to write! btw.. disgusting black toilets and sinks and the doctors actual private office in the back was FULL of CLOWNS with papers STACKED HIGH ALL OVER THE FLOOR! as if he has NO WHERE to store them..YUCK!!! I felt judged and uncomfortable EVERY time I was in that office! (scottsdale location) It only took 3 times for me to decide to NEVER go back there again!!!
Dr. Moos has been my physician for over 10 years. He is wonderful, caring and knowledgeable. I do not have children but see him as a gyno. dr. He did perform a myomectomy to relieve my fibroid pain when another physician would not help me. He is a terrific doctor.
Dr. Moos seemed very knowledgeable and friendly. He informed me on my first visit that he wouldn't do a c-section unless it was absolutely necessary which I agreed I wanted to have a natural child birth. I had some concerns when his nurse drew my blood with no gloves on. I continued to see him all through my pregnancy and he informed me that everything was fine. The evening my water broke I called him and he informed me that I could go to the hospital or I could wait until 6 am. So I waited. After being in labor for almost 12 hours the nurses told me that I wasn't going to dilate past 6 and my baby was in distress. Dr. Moos wanted to give it the "ol college try" so I waited 8 more hours got an infection and as they were wheeling me into the surgery room for a c-section Dr. Moos says "Your cervix is too small to deliver, remember we talked about it". Well we never "talked about it" and he assured me that I would be able to deliver normally.
