Dr. Richard Moy has been (unknown by him) a mentor of mine for many years. Dr. Moy is the best I have ever seen in Marketing and the internet in the podiatric profession. As result of the internet/marketing and (of course his skills) Richard Moy is possibly the busiest Bunion Surgeon in the country. The systemized technique and completely open reporting of his results combined with being on the forefront of technology has made his web page the finest physician page I have ever seen - www.DrMoy.com - Richard will be our guest on Meet the Masters on Tuesday December 7 at 9pm (est). You will NOT want to miss your chance to ask questions to this master.
