very blunt

January 16, 2018

Dr. Moossy has been my back doctor for 10 years. Our doctor/patient relationship has grown over the years. I greatly appreciate all he has done for me. He has tried to help me with my severe back pain by surgery and an implanted pain pump which has helped me get off some heavy duty pain medicine. Yes, it didn't happen over night and it took time and patience, but he hasn't given up on me like other doctors who wouldn't even consider my case. To Dr. Moossy, I am truly thankful for all he has done!!!

This experience with Dr. John Moossy was a reacquaintance as I had not seen him since 2003. He followed up the C 2,3,4 Laminectomy for removal of a benign neurofibroma performed by Dr. Paul Nelson in October 1989. I will have another visit with Dr. Moossy in January following various tests including an MRI to determine the cause of issues with my neck which may be related to the 1989 surgery? I have maximum confidence in Dr. Moossy with his knowledge and experience, and his sincere interest in my well being.

Dr. Moossy was sharing information from X-Rays and MRIs taken earlier in the day. We discussed a plan of action.

Was my 1st time with Dr. Moosy.

I have the utmost respect and confidence in Dr. Moossey. However because the procedure only has a 50/50 chance for success and the possibility of paralizing me along with some other undesireable possibilities I have decided to forego the procedure for now.

Dr Moosy was very thorough and considerate of the fact that I was sent to him because no one has been able to ease my pain. He was kind and professional.
