We love our environment and are taking steps to help keep it healthy. We now use electronic medical records and e-prescribing prescription medication. We use rechargeable batteries and recycled materials whenever possible. Finally, we have a lobby dedicated to nature complete with lots of sunshine and a koi pond.
I have three children- the later two were delivered by doctors at this practice. I have experience with Dr. Jewell, who delivered my second, Dr. Moore, who delivered my third, and Leah, who is my... regular go-to for most checkups. I found that they all are extremely professional and very skilled. I enjoy that the practice is very small and that you really get a chance to know everyone. In addition, Leah is a standout professional - friendly demeanor, up to date on various medical issues including the latest screenings, and truly concerned with your well-being (as opposed to simply going through a checklist of issues in a rote fashion). Finally, the office is very modern technologically - ultrasounds, bloodwork all done in-house, and they use a great online portal to keep track of appointments and test results.VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »
This is my second child and am so glad I found Haven OB/GYN. I just love this practice. Dr Jewell really makes you feel like you're his only patient with his level of care and professionalism. I... never have to wait long to see him and the nurses, phlebotomists and reception staff are all top notch. Compared to my first pregnancy (interstate), the care here is unrivalled. We are sure when the time comes to deliver, we'll be in great hands. Thank you Haven OB/GYN!!VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »
I found this group last year on Kudzu when I was looking for a small OB practice. I met with Dr. Moore to get a feel for the practice and instantly liked him. When we became pregnant, he and the rest of the practice were great. I rarely had to wait for my appointments (annual appointment or OB related). It was easy to make appointments for the dates and times I needed. The front desk staff was always accommodating and helpful. I did not have any issues with billing or insurance, clearly the work of excellent support staff. The nurses were friendly and great at blood draws. I saw Dr. Moore, Leah and Dr. Jewell during my pregnancy. No one ever rushed me during my appointments and always answered my questions. They were prompt in returning calls to the nursing lines when I had questions. Dr. Jewell joined the practice toward the end of my pregnancy but it was very easy to develop a rapport with him. It is clear why Dr. Moore asked him to join the practice. Dr. Moore delivered my baby in August. I had some complications after the birth of our daughter but Dr. Moore and Dr. Jewell were there with me all the way. My husband and I both felt confident that I was in the best hands possible. Both Dr. Moore and Dr. Jewell followed up with me via phone even after I left the hospital to check in on both myself and our beautiful baby girl. I will miss seeing everyone on a regular basis. I cannot recommend this practice enough.
I was very nicely surprised by how much time Dr. Moore spent with me during my first visit there. He answered all my questions and even recommended an additional blood test – one I was dragging to do for a couple of years. Everybody there is very friendly and understanding. Dr. Moore is also very accommodating with his schedule. Definitely recommended!
Both my sister and I have had our babies delivered with Dr. Moore and wouldn't dream of going elsewhere! Pregnancy is a stressful time and having a good doctor makes all of the difference. My sister is pregnant with her third child and relieved to be delivering her baby once again with Dr. Moore. We have both experienced other ob/gyn doctors and none were near the level of skill and quality of Dr. Moore and his staff. In my first pregnancy, I had placenta previa and my husband and I were extremely nervous. I changed to Dr. Moore's office at 5 months pregnant and was not disappointed. He monitored my entire pregnancy via 3-D ultrasound and knowledgeably addressed each and every concern. I have a tendency to worry a lot during my pregnancies! I appreciated that Dr. Moore never made me feel foolish or silly for my concerns, as some doctors have in the past. It is important to realize that no person or doctor is perfect, and every pregnancy is different, as well. That being said, if I have to wait an extra 10 minutes in the waiting room, because my Doctor is taking good care of his other patients, it doesn't bother me. He will do the same with me. Doctor Moore ALWAYS took time with me and that is definitely worth the occasional wait. I felt I was in good hands in his care and would highly recommend him to other pregnant women.

I completely understand emergencies and from this experience just learned a lesson to 'not try and fix what is not broken' in terms of changing drs. Since I was referred by a relative, I was kind of shocked that I didn't recieve any direct type of correspondence with an apology or at least acknowledgement of my situation (other than the response on Kudzu). Also, I had scheduled 1 1/2 hrs to physically be in the office for this visit--I had to be back at noon to work and knew that wasn't happening. I nor anyone I have discussed this with believes I have 'unrealistic expectations' at all. It has never taken me longer than that for a visit with an obgyn in the past. This does not necessarily reflect on the doctor, but I was embarrased and offended by the way I was spoken to by the receptionist. Regardless I am sure Dr Moore is a good dr... Just not a wonderful experience w/staff on my end unfortunately. I am very happy to hear the situation is being addressed with the office staff member.
Let me begin by saying NEVER is it acceptable for my office staff to be rude to patients. That being said, let me expound on this incident. This patient booked a new patient appointment at 10:30 and informed my staff she had to be back to work at 11:15. If she had walked in my door, immediately left a urine sample, had vital signs taken, sat in my office to explain her medical history and current problem (remember she is a new patient), gotten undressed, been examined... (you get the point) it is unlikely that she could have left my office by 11:00 to be back to work on time (assuming there is no Atlanta traffic and she works close by). I think she set herself up with unrealistic expectations and no one could live up to them. Now, I deal with medical conditions and sometimes emergencies arise. On this particular day, one of the pregnant women who went before her happened to be bleeding and needed to be seen immediately. Anyways, I hate waiting at the doctors office and try very hard to stay on time... but emergencies happen, sometimes an appointment takes longer than we scheduled... and I get behind. This person who works in doctors offices should know this. I realize that you have more contact with my staff than me and strive to have an excellent staff. I will not tolerate rudeness and will deal with this situation. Finally I did not call to apologize because this person within hours of the appointment posted this public bashing of me on the internet. I do not take kindly to my good name getting trashed and am glad this person has decided to go elsewhere for healthcare.
I moved from New York to Atlanta and found Dr. Moore on Kudzu.I wonder if the reviews here are real because my experience with him isnt the same. I like him, but didn't like the way he took care of me during my pregnancy. He made me come in alot more than I needed to for tests and tests and tests that my insurance didn't pay all for. He then forced me to be induced because that is when he is on call. I only seen him two times all day and then he just did a cesarean at the end. The nurse told me that he probably would do a cesaerean as usual.I dont think he gave me a chance to deliver. Yes he is nice and can be sarcastic and arogant but I think he needs a better attitude and respect for pregnant people. i shouldnt of believed the things I read about him here cause its probably made up. This now is a real patient with a real review. Thankyou.
There are so many negative things here, I'm not sure where to start. First let me say, I believe strongly in letting patients make the ultimate decisions on their health care. Things like lab tests, epidurals, C-sections, inductions, and episiotomies are all done after explaining the pros/cons and letting you make the final call. I follow the standard of care established by ACOG (the American College of Ob/Gyn) and don't order any unusual/unnecessary tests. I cannot speak for all insurance plans, but I try and warn if there's a chance a lab won't be covered. Again, you can always decline a lab, test, or ultrasound if you don't want them. I never force anyone to do anything- especially inductions or C-sections. I have a low C-section rate although I think it would be a lot lower for everyone if we didn't have so many lawsuits- but we'll save that for another day. I think the nurses at Northside like me and doubt they would say "he'll probably do a C-section as usual." I also wonder why she stuck with me if she was unhappy- there are a lot of ob/gyn's in Atlanta. I think most of my patients like me, but no practice fits everyone. If you are unhappy with your doctor, change- I have people change practices to me all the time because they are unhappy with their current practice. Finally, I know all of my patients (I'm a solo doctor) and I couldn't find anyone who was induced, from New York, and had a C-section in the past few months. I also noticed this person made a real effort to state they were 'real.' I love Kudzu and think it's a great thing that patients can write reviews on their doctors. However anyone, even competition, can post things and I think this may be such a posting.
I wouldn't go anywhere else, even if you paid me to. Dr. Moore and his staff took excellent care of me throughout my pregnancy and afterwards. He is a very cautious physicians, which puts my mind at ease 100%. I never feel that I am being rushed, and I am able to have all of my questions answered before leaving the office. I would, and have, recommended Dr. Moore to friends and family. I have also seen his nurse/midwife Carol a few times, and she's great too!
If your looking for the most caring, considerate, & knowledgeable OB/GYN & staff .. look no further this is it!! After I found out I was pregnant, I went to another OB for 3 visits, I was very uncomfortable with that doctor & decided to look on Kudzu. I found Dr. Moore & scheduled a visit ..... WOW! WHAT A DIFFERENCE!! This is my 1st pregnancy and I had no clue what to expect. Dr. Moore met with me & told me a little bit about himself, spelled out what I should expect through the pregnancy, answered questions I never even thought about & provided a great "goody" bag before leaving. I like the consistency of seeing the same doctor, unlike the feeling of being a number in one of those mecca cookie cutter offices. Dr. Moore provides the 3D/4D sonograms that are AMAZING! Several of my friends expecting now have only received the older b & w type. I can go on & on about the doctor which is important, but let's face it, half the time in the doctor's office is interacting with the staff, & the staff here is above and beyond helpful as well! I have now started having problems with "that previous" doctor and his absurd billing practices and Brittany in Dr. Moore's office has done so much to help & guide me during my ordeal with them. I've consulted w/Brittany in the past with Insurance questions unrelated to Dr. Moore & she is always eager to help! EVERYONE here goes above and beyond to make sure your pregnancy is as comforting and wonderful as it should be!!
I was not an actual patient of Dr. Moore's yet but had a upcoming appt. Prior to my appt my baby's heart stopped beating and I had had an missed miscarriage. The acting physician that I was going to requested that I wait from Wednesday to Monday to remove the dead fetus. I was already hysterical due to fact that my 1st born had died. In also that they would not mind having me carry it over the weekend. I may have done harm to myself in the mental state that I was in. I called Dr. Moore's office and he squeezed me in immediately. He was a blessing and he also called the hospital and did my surgery for me after hours at 9pm. This doctor truly cares about people even those like myself that he doesn't even know. I will forever be appreciative of what he did for me in my time of grief and despair. Thank you so much... He will be my doctor for life! He also kept me very well informed in every step of this procedure. Thank you Dr. Moore.
Dr. Moore is an incredibly compassionate and sensitive doctor who really, truly cares for his patients. My husband and I had had 3 miscarriages in a row, and it meant so much to us how willing Dr. Moore was to let us come in for ultrasounds, especially in the first 10 - 12 weeks of our pregnancy -- the time when we were so scared of having another miscarriage. Thank you Dr. Moore.
Dr. Moore and his staff are the best. I live one hour from the office, but it was worth the drive. I had a great pregnancy and delivery. You can tell that Dr. Moore really cares about his patients. He took the time to answer all of my questions. I never felt rushed or had to wait for long periods of time. The staff is great. They are always polite, answer your questions, and return phone calls. Although my pregnancy is over, I will keep Dr. Moore as my obgyn due to his expertise and service to his patients. When it is time for our next baby I am at ease because I know we already have a great doctor.
We had moved to ATL in December 2006. Soon after that I found a female ob/gyn on Mt. Vermont hwy for my pre-pregnancy check up and left very disappointed. I had found Dr. Moore on Kudzu and I’m very happy with my choice. Dr. Moore has been very supportive and caring thru my early miscarriage (not due to Dr. Moore’s care), D&C procedure and now our second pregnancy. He always answers all of our questions clearly (very appreciated by my husbandand :) )and we never feel rushed thru our appointment. Also, having in-office ultrasounds saves us a lot of time and extra appointments.
I just delivered via c-section with Dr. Moore at Northside. His prenatal care was top notch, and it was always clear that he cares about his patients and loves what he does - especially the ultrasounds (which are really cool.) My c-section was planned due to some of my health issues and was much easier/less stressful than I anticipated. Dr. Moore made sure I had all of the info I needed and was great at keeping my husband and I involved and aware of what was going on. The surgery was very successful, and I am having a very good recovery. I would happily recommend Dr. Moore to anyone and am looking forward to continuing as a patient with his practice.
Dr. Moore is an awesome doctor and has been very helpful & insightful the last few months I have been going to him. He seems to truly care for his patients and not only provide you with the best service, but also help in a cost efficient way for those without insurance. I highly recommend.
I did....I got married and moved to Atlanta in February of 2007. I asked around for OBGYN suggestions but soon realized in Atlanta you find someone close to home otherwise you spend your whole day traveling to an appointment...I was looking for some resturant suggesitons one evening on Kudzu and thought...humm I wonder if they have doctors...so I put in OBGYN with my soon to be zip code and Dr. Moore came up. I remeber thinking "this is no way to find a doctor!" I read his website, patient reviews, went for my first visit and I am happy to admit...boy was I wrong...finding and meeting Dr. Moore and his staff has eased any and every care or concern I could ever have...since January of 2007...we has served as my doctor, successfully performed a small surgery on me, and is now preparing my husband and I for the birth of our first baby in January 2009!! He is someone I have total confidence in and truly feel blessed to call my doctor. J. Newman
This is the greatest doctor. I feel very special every time I come. I went through numerous doctors and was blessed to find Dr. Moore. He was with me through my pregnancy and delivered my son one year ago. I refer all my co-workers to him, and everyone is happy so far.
