    My conversation with and the assessment by Dr. Moffitt and her Resident (Dr.Claire ____) was very, very helpful for me in making future health care decisions. Understandable language.

  • Sep 23, 2019


  • Sep 17, 2019

    My appointment was for 11:00. I finally saw Dr. Moffitt at 12:20. She made no apology for the extremely long wait. This is my 2nd appointment with her and she was 20 minutes late for that appointment also. I drove from The Dalles, so I am always early because I allow extra time for traffic. These very long wait times on top of that makes for an unhappy patient.

  • Sep 12, 2019

    She is very professional and knowledgeable and personable. I feel like she really cares and gives me 100% of her attention.

    Dr. Moffitt is easy to interact and communicate with

  • Jul 23, 2019

    Well the first experience was getting a little turned around and then being provided a volunteer escort to the office. I did wait some time but it was displayed on marque Dr. running behind. Nurse/DR. very attentive and professional. Got a test as a walk-in that was timely as well.Over-all great.

  • Jul 23, 2019

    Every time I come in for an appointment I am first struck by how pleasant the environment is. The atmosphere is calm and aesthetic. The next thing that strikes me is how lovely each of the staff is; always a warm smile and greeting. And, of course, I always enjoy the time spent with Dr. Moffitt and her team. She is so very excellent.

  • Jul 18, 2019

    Extremely professional, very knowledgeable and nice and I like the fact that she answered all my questions.

  • Jul 16, 2019

    This appointment was actually confusing. Normally I don't leave feeling confused as she is very clear and normally speaks openly. I do believe at this point she knows my body well, but I still feel I know my body best. I will see her again in a month (?f an appointment becomes available), hopefully we can clear up any confusion at that point.

  • Jul 02, 2019
