Wonderful to find a Dr. who says he can help me after so many times of hearing " live with what you have".

February 21, 2017

I am very pleased with the way I was treated. My doctor/assistant was very honest with my issue and told me how things will be and explained everything to myself and husband.

I have always been pleased with Dr Moossy and his staff. They are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.

February 07, 2017

have NEVER had a bad experience with Dr Moossy or any of his staff, office staff, or anybody. love UPMC.

February 07, 2017

second visit and I wish I could keep.Dr. Moossy as my doctor. I don't need surgery , just follow up Medical pain management. I want Dr. Moossy for that but he doesn't do it unless the patient had surgery with him. My loss because he's great! I know 3 people who go to him and they are happy with him and his staff. Kathy especially She sees my daughter often.

Dr. Moossy was wonderful. He asked for my input as well as giving his opinion. He's such a kind person as well. I'd recommend him to anybody.

January 31, 2017

I have had 2 cervical surgeries by Dr.Moossy and would not EVER go to anyone else. I trust him.

January 31, 2017

I absolutely love, respect, and would recommend any one to Dr. J. Moossy! He absolutely cares for his patients! I am so blessed that he did my surgery. His staff is a true blessing in disguise, one of his PA's paid for 1 of my medications while I was in the hospital! You don't find that kind of care just anywhere!

Dr moosey is by far the best Doctor i have ever had

Dr Moossy has been my neurosurgeon for close to 25 years. He has operated on me 6 times. Most of these have been on my spine which have required long surgeries and recoveries. Having to deal with 6 different health conditions from UPMC Specialists, Dr. Moossy is the best one. He cares, has pleasant examining room manners, doesn't rush into surgery unless all else fails, is very empathetic to my circumstances and moreover is an excellent neurosurgeon. I am glad and fortunate to have such an outstanding health care provider to care for my spine. He is the best neurosurgeon that have performed 3 out of my 6 spine surgeries/fusions/implants. In hindsight, I wish that I could have found him sooner to do the first 3. To be candid, I really can't say that about the other 3-5 UPMC specialists. They just don't have the overall qualities of treatment that Dr. Moossy exemplifies.
