The staff and Dr Moritz are always great and helpful!

very thorough evaluation

July 05, 2017

The only issue I always face during these visits are wait time. We come to hospital since 8:00 am and wait until 11:30 to see doctor. Its too much waiting time which seems longer specially with a 9 year old nothing to do in a small room. Also I am a working mom and cannot afford waiting for half of a day just for 10 mins visit. There should be some solution for this.

Dr. Moritz is an amazing doctor who always makes me feel like I am getting the best health care for my condition with. He always shows patience and never gets frustrated, even when he's asked the same question several times. I would recommend him to anyone that needed a nephrology doctor and I'm very happy that my family and I found him to be my doctor.
