Joe Moss explains his role as a certified physician assistant: “I look at my job as being a manager of my patients’ healthcare. I can help them, be here for guidance, but they have to do most of the work themselves. So I’m really the manager of their treatment.” Mr. Moss started his career in healthcare as a registered nurse, but after working in that field for nearly nine years, he decided to make a change. “I wanted to give a higher level of care. I love being a physician assistant because I have more of an impact on my patients’ lives.”

A native Texan, Mr. Moss feels rewarded to be practicing in Rusk. He doesn’t mind his busy schedule because it allows him plenty of personal interaction with his patients. “I treat people the way I would want to be treated. I always try to stay down-to- earth and get to know my patients; I think that’s very important.”

I have known Dr.Joe Moss for over 20 years. Joe is kind,considerate and has a bubbly personality. He not only manages your health care,he helps your mental health as well. If you are feeling down and just have the blues Joe has a way to get you out of the funk that you are in. So if you are looking and needing a great Dr.Joe Moss is for you. He and Dr.Mark Morris have always been the best,and would not trade them for anyone else that is for sure...

Joe Moss is a PA with more medical knowledge than and doctor/specialist I've ever had.

He took time to listen to me and I had been having a severe cough for several years with fever. My family doctor was not taking care of me properly. When I saw Dr. Moss he asked me had I had An x-ray and I not. He did a chest x-ray and I had an pneumonia. I also had scarring on my lungs because the family doctor I used had never bother to do an X- RAY— I have never smoked in my life the scarring was because my family doctor had not treated me. Dr. Joe Moss did! I had excellent excellent care.

Joe Moss has my primary healthcare provider for 20 years. He is the best listener of any doctor I have ever been to. He asks important questions, and answers all my questions. He explains things well in plain english. He is smart, kind, and truly caring. He knows his business. I have felt so fortunate to have him as my healthcare provider.
