This is my second appointment with Dr Moorthy for a foot issue. Each time he has been professional, listened to my concerns, and offered options. In the end he suggested the most conservative treatment which shows that not all surgeons want to perform surgery right away. Highly recommend Dr M

I am going through the evaluations right now unlike other places they are not trying to get the biggest job to make money. They give me options ones that cost less and ones that are more expensive but I don't have the pressure like some other places..
