About this doctor:

John Moos, MD, is a surgeon in the divisions of upper GI-general surgery and hepatobiliary, liver, and pancreas surgery in the Department of Surgery at the Keck School of Medicine of USC.

He possesses exceptional surgical qualifications, strong leadership and research skills, and a talent for instructing residents and students. He has won high praise from his senior mentors at Keck for both his technical skills & excellent rapport with patients and support staff. He also serves at our Good Samaritan satellite clinic in Los Angeles.

Philosophy of care:
My goal in caring for patients is to play an integral role in their care; escorting them through the discovery, treatment and resolution of their disease process utilizing humanism, humility and positivity. Their medical care should be clear, concise and transformative. Every patient should feel heard, have their dignity honored and leave confident with their plan and goals of treatment. I am grateful for the privilege to help those in need.
