What Are Patients Saying?

I was lucky to find Dr. Moorhead. My previous ENT specialist always used to rush and used to do a sloppy job. Dr. Moorhead always does a thorough exam and answers my questions completely. I can’t say enough great things about him. His staff is friendly, courteous and professional.

Dr. Moorhead is a wonderful doctor who listens patiently and pays attention to what you are telling him. He looks you in the eyes and explains things thoroughly until you understand what he is telling you. He also asks if you have any questions or concerns. I found him to be very kind and compassionate. Three weeks ago today he did a septoplasty with turbinate reduction surgery on me and I am finally breathing more normally.
