Have you seen Dr. Marlene Moster?
one of the worst surgeons I have ever experienced

Dr. Moster is one of the top rated Doctor in America, she is especially friendly and genuinely cares about her patients. She has performed Trabeculectomy surgery on both my eyes, my eye pressure was in the 40's without medication, and high 30's with meds. Now 6 months after surgery my right eye is at 11 and my left is at 13 after 1 month. I am very pleased to have such a great surgeon in my area. Surgery is performed at renowned Wills eye Hospital, with great staff. Can't say enough of how friendly her nurses and assistants were. The level of care is very good, and post OP is fantastic. Dr. Moster is a very skilled surgeon and very sough after for lectures, that's how my optometrist found out about her, and recommended her to me for glaucoma surgery. At first I was kind of caught of guard because I don't normally have Doctors who have such great bed side manner, are friendly and engaged with their patients. Thanks Dr. Moster if you are reading this.
Bottom Line - Intraocular pressure was 18-20, now stable at 12-13.

I am a 51 year old man who has been battling glaucoma since early 20's. I have already suffered significant vision loss and have continuously searched for options to limit future loss. After a trabeculectomy 4 years ago caused immediate incremental loss of vision followed by closure which mitigated effectiveness of pressure control, I was "done" with procedures for fear of acceleration of the very loss of vision I was targeting to decelerate. Other Ophthalmologists I saw for options talked "at" me and told me what I "had to do" and were irritable when I asked "why" and "at what risk". Dr. Moster was referred to me by a trusted Ophthalmologist and my first visit was 2 years ago. The first visit outlined options but in a manner that was consultative. The second visit, almost a year later, she presented the option of canaloplasty. In the last 6 months I have had canaloplasty on both eyes, with a resulting pressure in both of 13 from 18-20. As a patient, I would recommend Dr. Moster not only for her surgical skills and experience with up to date glaucoma treatment, but also her (and her team) for creating an open, honest dialogue on options. I do think it is worthwhile to point out that in the many visits I drive to Philly to see her, every time she was educating, training, and explaining to residents and staff members. On a personal level I take this as a sign of not only her passion for âgetting it rightâ but in the investment to teach and train others. The downside of this is a more chaotic office environment, frequent interiptions, and long waits, not optimal but to me I get the balance between this and seeing fewer patients and doing less training. We will see if the canaloplasty is short or long term, but I would recommend Dr. Moster and her team for top quality glaucoma care and treatment.

Dr Moster cares a great deal for her patients - she spends much time to the nand listens to them. Her appointments run late but people understand her caring way. Her staff is excellant. I have never had a better experience. Her surgery practice was great - I feared the surgury but she made me comfortable.

My husband I traveled 5 hours to see Dr Moster who is toted to be a very competent and experienced physician in her treatment of glaucoma. However her practice is a glaring example of what is wrong with our health care system. This is a great office to visit if you don't mind waiting ninety (90) minutes before you see a doctor. It is pure greed on their part to double and even triple book the office appointments. Then when you do finally get to see this doctor there are many distractions and after a few minutes you are handed off to a technician and have a very difficult time getting questions answered. It would be great if this practice would remember that it is dealing with real human beings and it should not be run like an airline. We felt "rushed" although waiting nearly five hours for visit to conclude. Procedure to be conducted was not thoroughly explained and the staff had a disinterested attitude. We had been there for five hours with no offer of coffee or any beverage - no coffee shop in immediate vicinity, although we had to wait for a staff member to come back from her lunch break to check us out. I hope someone perhaps office manager will see this review.

I am a physician. I had a complex issue with my Glaucoma and my friend ophthalmologist recommended Dr. Moster.I am so glad that I chose her for treatment and surgery. I will recommend her without any reservation. Only problem is that she is so busy that it can take several months to get appointment, but it is worth waiting to see this very well respected and one of the best surgeon on east cost. Office staff is extremely friendly and helping. Thank you Dr. Moster

From my very first visit to Dr. Moster, I have felt tremendously blessed. I came to her with advanced glaucoma--high pressure in both eyes, especially the right eye. Drops were no longer effective in lowering my pressure and it was time to consider surgery. My children wanted me to shop for the best doctor we could find. I saw a few specialists, but when I met Dr. Moster I was sold. Her energy, manner and confidence put me at ease. She made me less fearful in anticipation of surgery. Dr. Moster put an Express Shunt in my right eye; performed a trabeculectomy on my left eye. She told me I would feel no pain--and I felt no pain. I have since had my blebs needled; had a tube inserted in the right eye and there is more surgery (cataract/glaucoma) in my seeing future. And that's the whole point: to have a "seeing future." Dr. Moster gives me confidence that she will do all that is possible to keep me seeing. On top of being a great doctor and surgeon, she is delightfully funny and quite frisky (smile). She is a beautiful person and needless to say: I love her and her staff, who exhibit the same personable caring and warmth as the good doctor while remaining at all times professional. I think my pressure was 32 when we met and now it's nice and low. I am thankful. She knows I'm a big cry-baby and as I write this I am tearing up. Thank you, Dr. Moster.

Dr. Moster is an amazing doctor. I am a very challenging case that required every ounce of her expertise. She is straight foward and doesn't sugar coat. That being said-she also is quick to have a plan of attack to fix your glaucoma issues. Bring a book-most of the time you are going to have a fairly long wait. Once you are in there though, you will see she is so worth the wait. She has a great sense of humor and will cheer you up in no time. She even gave me a piece of candy when I had a tough procedure-and a great hug! She genuinely cares and eases your mind in no time.She has performed surgical and laser procedures on me. I highly recommend Dr. Moster for complicated glaucoma cases. She earns every award on her walls. I am a huge fan of this remarkable doctor!

In my layman's opinion Dr. Moster is an excellent ophthalmologist. She treated both my eyes with success. I have seen her patiently describe to "fellows" how they should treat different situations and have seen her probe them for problems and then discuss various options for treatment. She is forthright in her diagnoses and compassionate with her patients. She exudes energy and expertise. I heartily recommend her
