Dr. Moscoso is a fine physician. He a big guy with a gentle nature. He takes the time to explain your condition and the treatment with simple and easy instructions. I would definitely recommend him to anyone having surgery. In my case I had to have emergency surgery, but I am so glad he was on duty that day. He did an excellent job. May God continue to Bless him and guide him.

I was one of Dr Moscoso's first patients and could not have been more pleased with him. I believe if I had not had such a competent doctor, I would not be here today.

The whole process from PCP referral through surgery went very well despite some of my own anxiety. Dr. Moscoso and his staff were helpful and professional the whole way. Recovering nicely. Thanks to all.
