Ochsner Patient Verified Reviews

To obtain patient ratings and comments, we partner with Press Ganey, an independent patient satisfaction company that works with more than 26,000 healthcare organizations to improve the patient experience. These patient verified ratings are based on the “likelihood to recommend” physician scores on the nationally developed Medical Practice Survey. Actual top box results for this question are translated to a 1-5 scale, and the star scores are measured on that scale, with 5 being the best score.

Dr. Willard Moore was excellent. He told care of me - address addition concerns - My care was more caring than I could have imagined.

February 2024

Dr. Moore was outstanding. He was very friendly and personable. Many younger physicians don't examine the patient and order imaging first. Not Dr. Moore. He took the time to take an adequate history and then perform an appropriate physical examination. This Is how It should be. We had a good discussion with shared decision making. Excellent!
