My experience with Dr. Mooar has been exemplary from the first meeting on. He performed an exemplary hip replacement a dozen or more years ago and it's still working fine. He takes the time to listen, explain, suggest, and recommend solutions. He has a wonderful knack for putting patients at ease. Good doctor; good man.
