good

February 17, 2014

Dr. Moss was great with my son. He spoke to him and told him exactly what he was doing, and what he was looking at and why. He asked pertinent questions of my son, and was able to get all information needed without any difficulty. I would recommend him to anyone who had a dermatology issue.

January 26, 2014

I can't believe I got so lucky as to have found Dr. Moss after losing Dr. Hugh Davis. Dr. Moss is probably one of the best doctors I've seen, I only wish he was a family physician instead of just a dermatologist. He is a rare kind of doctor, he actually shows genuine care and concern for his patients, both my husband and I see him and couldn't be happier to have stumbled upon him

January 23, 2014

I had questions about my Raynauds which no one for 41 years have never addressed and were finally adressed when the symptoms have been so bad. Thank you.

January 16, 2014

I would like to have more instructions as to what I should do about follow up care at home. I had to ask as what I should do. Only then did I receive instructions but I feel that they were not sufficient.

December 13, 2013

I have a lot of confidence in Dr. Moss

December 11, 2013

November 05, 2013

November 04, 2013

Total time of my interaction with Dr. Moss as about 5 minutes long. It was sufficient for him to diagnose my problem and prescribe medicine, but was frustrating because I waited 45+ minutes (past my appointment time) for a 5 minute appointment.

November 04, 2013

Dr. Moss is awesome, he is very thorough and rather than assuming something is benign he always errs on the side of caution and sends it to the lab. His demeanor and professionalism make my husband and I feel very safe and secure and we completely trust Dr. Moss, which is rare with doctors these days.

November 01, 2013

October 22, 2013

Great doctor

October 21, 2013

I've also been taking my granddaughters to see Dr. Moss for their acne problems. He's always very good with the girls and talks directly to them about their condition and explaining things in a way they can understand (they are 11 & 15). They really like him and I think they appreciate that he doesn't talk over them like some adults have a tendancy to do!
