Meet the Team
Experience you can depend on
Dr. Moore is a Baylor College of Medicine graduate and a board-certified anesthesiologist with a certificate of additional qualification in pain management who limits his practice to pain relief. He is also president of Pain Management Center of Houston and the former chief of staff at Methodist Diagnostic Hospital.
Dr. Moore, Dr. Manzi and their team at Pain Management Center of Houston are dedicated to staying at the forefront of the pain-relief field in order to bring you the latest and most effective treatment methods. This philosophy has been a guiding principle in the practice for more than two-and-a-half decades.
“My dad is an anesthesiologist and he was the primary influence in my getting into the profession. And although Dad encouraged me to think about being a doctor, he never pushed me. He took me to see my first operation when I was 12. I was interested in what I saw, and a few years later I got a summer job as an orderly at the hospital where Dad worked. So I literally worked my way up from mopping floors in the OR to becoming the pain-relief specialist that I am today.
“I’m glad Dad encouraged me to become a doctor. I get great satisfaction out of helping patients out of pain. Eighty percent of all my new patients are sent to me by other doctors. These referring doctors know I have access to the latest pain-relief innovations and discoveries due to my fellowship training and my ongoing postdoctoral education.”

In his spare time, Dr. Moore enjoys sailing, SCUBA diving, snow skiing, backpacking, photography, videography and video production and editing.
Having been an NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball player in college, Dr. Manzi knows how much pain and injuries can interfere with everyday living. By shadowing her team physician at an early age, through her extensive training in rehabilitation and now through her experience in practice, she has learned how to treat pain and restore function for her patients to live their lives to their fullest. Her own treatment is centered through empathy: She is a good listener, provides her patients with a thorough physical examination and is a compassionate electrodiagnostician. Her goal is to diagnose the problem, correct it and return her patients back to a life of function.
