Liked them very much.
  Overall Patient Rating - July 2019
*Dr. Moonka didn't sit down, didn't ask if I had any questions & maybe spent 3 min. with me. For an hour's worth of driving, he could at least gave me the time of day. The resident handed me a sheet on my condition on my way out. No one asked if I had any questions & it was a BLUR. I didn't have a second to open my mouth to ask before they were gone.

*Dr. Moonka was assigned to my case in August. From the beginning I trusted him and he instilled a sense of confidence & hope in my case. He is a good/active listener and has answered all of my MANY questions.
  Overall Patient Rating - February 2019
I have mixed feelings about my confidence in this dr. I suspected he did not have a lot of experience with my condition & he has admitted to me he doesn't - I do really appreciate his honesty with me and even though I have a rare condition of course I would be more comfortable with someone more experienced.

My time with *Dr. Moonka was great but short MAYBE 10 minutes.
  Overall Patient Rating - February 2019
*Dr. Moonka said his NA would be calling me to set u another appointment after he received the CT scans. Haven't heard anything from him yet.
