Ratings for Dr. George R. Moro
I have nothing but the highest praise for Dr. George Moro and St. Joseph's Hospital, Orange! He did my ileostomy reversal surgery perfectly, and as a result lives in my heart forever. It's not a small thing. He gave me my LIFE back with consummate dignity and professionalism. Kudos, Dr. Moro! I ❤️U. You're the BEST!!! --Andrea Nelson
I've spoken to Dr. Moro twice. Both times he was a huge jerk. I don't know how someone could reach his age and still have such an unpleasant personality. I'm recovering right now from surgery from him, and regret choosing him as my doctor. I'm worried he purposely misled me about surgery, thats how little trust I have in him. I've honestly never met someone who was such a jerk.
Dr. Moro is human being 1st. Something that most Doctors never learned in Med School He cares about you, he's direct in his approach to treating cancer of the colon and he takes the time to discuss all issues of concern. I'm a general contractor and real estate broker who had colon cancer at the age of 41. When I met Dr. Moro I wanted the straight scope which Dr Moro gave me. My experience with most Doctors is they tend to candy coat your medical issues instead of hitting them head on. I appreciated Dr. Moro giving me the truth no matter how hard it is to take sometimes. Yes I'm a survivor 14 years. I thank God I had Dr. Moro as my Doctor and Lilli his office manager who was the squeeky wheel who got the grease when it came to getting the insurance provider to stand behind their duty to provide the necessary insurance which I paid for.
The entire front office staff is the nicest office staff I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Dr. Moro was kind, thoughtful, and very proactive. I could not have been more comfortable in a doctor's office having an examination of this sort. I cannot say enough about this doctor and staff, and how wonderful they truly are. I feel very lucky to have had the opportunity to be seen by him.
Unlike other reviewers, I'm tremendously grateful to this man. I was injured while giving birth. I went to every damn Dr. in the O.C. & all of their operations failed, until one of them referred me to Dr. Moro. Dr. Moro was THE man that gave me my life back! He and his wife Lily (his assistant) ALWAYS treated me with compassion & kindness. I REALLY have a soft spot for this Dr and am tremendously grateful he fixed me! I LOVE this Dr & this office!
I chose Dr. Moro to remove my colon and construct a J-pouch since 95% of my colon was ulcerated and I didn't respond to any of the many medications I had tried. I found Dr. Moro to be an excellent surgeon but I did "suffer" an unexpected complication of the surgery....urinary retention. After the shock subsided I learned how to self-catheterize and, fortunately, my urinary function gradually returned to normal. I just wish I had known this might happen. Dr. Moro created a beautiful stoma....much better than most people have had. This was important to prevent receding and leakage. My J-pouch is also perfect. The only problem I had with Dr. Moro was dealing with his office manager. It was because of her, mainly, that I chose to go to another colorectal surgeon to have the second part of the surgery completed. Dr. Moro conducts a support group for those of us who have had this surgery. He's a wonderful teacher. He is also one heck of a nice guy! Oh, I swear by Hoag Hospital!
