I was a patient of Dr. Moore for more than twenty years .I was going to him before he set up his practice on Gold street. I am sorry to hear of his passing.
He kept my diabetes under control for many years as well as many other health problems.I am probably still alive due to hi9s ministrations.

I so admired John, he taught me how to do my job the right way when I was a rep. I valued our relationship, and was deeply saddened to learning of his passing. My best wishes for his family.

John was a kind man and a wonderful doctor. I met him when I moved my practice to Redding in 1986. We worked through many medical staff issues at Mercy Hospital over the years. John was always thoughtful, objective and fair. The medical community will miss him greatly, but will remember him with honor and respect.

One of the most intelligent and influential men I ever met. He taught so much in my years working for him. He made me a better person. He was kind, thoughful, intelligent and always told me like it was. I would not be a nurse today if it wasn't for him. I am truly sorry I didn't get to say goodbye. To the Moore family: I am sorry for your loss and will pray for your healing. May he rest in peace.

Brenda and family,
I am so sorry for your loss. John was a friend as well as my doctor for many years - and he helped deliver both of my daughters. Like many others, I will miss him.
