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.

just like to add, Dr Moossy help give me back quality of life.. he did surgery on me and not only did what he intended to do but he also corrected an old surgery procedure from another dr that was restricting my mobility of my neck and causing me terrible amount of pain for 20 months. so I can say that Dr Moossy gave me back my life
