About Dr. David Moore,
Heart Valve Surgeon
Hello! My name is Dr. David Moore and I am a cardiac surgeon having graduated from L.S.U. School of Medicine in New Orleans in 1981. To date, I have performed approximately 3,120 cardiac surgeries, of which 700 involved heart valve procedures. I regularly perform surgery at hospitals including The Heart Hospital Baylor Plano, Medical Center of Plano, and Medical City Dallas. Read more...
I believe my greatest strength is very good surgical training and “Hands On” experience. I have had a strong, diverse clinical practice for 24 years in the Dallas area. I recognize the importance of spending some time with patients in teaching and answering questions regarding their respective conditions.
I strive to seek the best options for my patients and dedicate myself to seeing them through their surgery and recovery. I am associated with a fine group of surgeons with much collective experience which is a great resource in the care of my patients. We practice in an excellent hospital dedicated to our mission of optimal cardiac surgical care.

"I had a corarted artery clean out........... I know there is a specific name for this and for short I believe it is a CEA............ Anyway I think Dr. Moore is fantastic in what he does, he is compassionate, he is brilliant, and sees you through this from beginning to end. Dr. Moore is a dr I would recommend to anyone with heart/vascular problems. So please take this recommendation seriously because I do not recommend unless I am 100% satisfied."

"Dr. Moore also replaced my aortic valve and wrapped my aortic arch after my aorta dissected. I thank God that Dr. Moore was at Medical City Dallas when I was sent there by another physician. I have the utmost faith in Dr. Moore and would want him to do any further surgeries my heart or aorta might need. He is my go-to doctor. Even after saving my life three times, Dr. Moore says he's not tired of saving me yet. Thanks to Dr. Moore, we found a genetic condition that affects me and my children. Even when my kids had surgery, Dr. Moore talked to me and their surgeons, and even when I had surgery that wasn't related to my cardiac issues, he was in the operating room to make sure I was okay. I would highly recommend Dr. Moore to anyone. "

Dr Moore is a smart dr who is very meticulous in his doings. He takes time to explain things to his patients, and make sure to seek the best way forward that is both medically sound, and patient friendly. He treats his patients like family, and not as the complete strangers that they are. As for me, he never breaks a promise, and will make sure to check on his patients through rain,sleet, or sun. I perceive him as a friend and will cherish his efforts in making me feel welcome in a foreign place, and of course, a clean bill of health. Thank you Dr Moore. You're a great dr, and the world needs to know about you. Respect an tanks, from yu Jamaican bredda. Yu a di boss. ONE LOVE!"

Just before my surgery, I asked Dr. Moore if he would bring his "A Game". HIs answer will be with me for the rest of my days. Unlike most surgeons who would affirm bringing their "A game", he said, “I am honored, grateful and privileged for the trust and faith you are giving me by putting your life in my hands, and yes....I will bring my A game"...
It does not get any better than that. A great man he is, and great surgeon as well."

Dr. Moore visited Rick each day after surgery to see how things were progressing, was honest with feedback on Rick's condition and gave us confidence that he and his team would do their absolute best to ensure a successful surgical outcome. The surgery was challenging and Rick wasn't in an "ideal" condition going into the procedure. In the midst of the fear and concern we had of the procedure, we had absolute confidence in Dr. Moore. He portrays competence, confidence and compassion. As an individual and doctor, you can't ask for more. Anyone who is fortunate enough to receive the care of Dr. Moore should feel very blessed -- as there is simply none better."
