Terrible Bedside Manner

I visited this doctor because he promotes non surgical options. Bull I was told surgery was my only option to treat a tibia plate. Don't waste your time. This was abrupt and rude to me. He sure as heck will not perform surgery on me.

Doctor Moorthy presents himself in a very professional, knowledgable and friendly manner. From my first visit, Doctor Moorthy made me feel comfortable and confident that he was the right physician to perform my ankle replacements. He has since completed my two ankle heel wedges and my right ankle replacement, successfully, without any complications and because of these experiences, I feel a closeness and a friendship with Doctor Moorthy and his staff .

An Amazing Surgeon

Dr. Moorthy did an amazing job on my toes. I was impressed with the X-rays. It seemed like there was so much that had to be done to straighten my toes and create a joint that was secure. He was able to do that, and with excellent results! Even though the healing took longer than I expected (bone graft), I know that it was necessary in order to be completely healed. Dr. Moorthy took the time to explain everything carefully along the way. I appreciated the time he gave and thoroughness he showed. I will need the same procedure done on my other foot, and will not hesitate to ask him to do it. BTW, he has not tried to persuade me to have it done before it's really needed.

Run and find someone else

I have suffered the last 6 years for Dr. Moorthy's arrogance and incompetence. I broke my foot through an unfortunate accident and have never been the same. I am now disabled and have trouble with walking, my knee, my other foot, my hip and back all from the uneven gait from my foot surgery.If you have a problem with your feet or ankles do not go to Moorthy. If he has already left you in a bad position get out of the John Muir Network. All of the Ortho's and Podiatrists are buddies.
