I expected the worse after reading other reviews, but was pleasantly surprised. I saw Dr. Moshell on 4 different days at the Washington Hospital Center. On all 4 occasions, my time in the waiting room was minimal. Dr. Moshell was both pleasant and thorough. He spent sufficient time with me, and I did not feel rushed during any of my appointments. His staff, however, was somewhat rude and made me feel like I was inconveniencing them.
I visited this practice several times. Not once did it take less than 45 minutes from the time I was brought into an examining and had my medical history reviewed by staff to the time a doctor appeared to examine me. I stopped by the front desk to schedule another appointment and the person who was "helping" me stopped to talk for a minute or two w/ a stock clerk, all the time I'm standing in front of the desk cooling my heels. This is the worst run medical office I've ever visited.
Dr. Moshell was dreadful. I truly resent a three minute consultation -- after I waited nearly an hour. The intern was delightful, pleasant, and seemed knowledgable, but I am paying for an MD to meet with me and discuss my condition. He was so unpleasant, perhaps the most unpleasant doctor I have ever met. So much for the hospital's mission -- To provide physical and spiritual comfort to our patients and families in the Jesuit tradition of cura personalis, caring for the whole person. I left the office feeling sad and disgraced.
After suffering from severe acne for over half of my life, I've tried literally every topical and tablet form of medication to control or eradicate it. Most does nothing, except for Accutane, which my previous doctor and I figured out to much relief. I came to Dr. Moshell just to get a refill after moving to D.C., which he refused. Instead he put me on a mix of solodyn and three topicals that have burned my skin - - not irritated, burned. As in chemical burn. On top of the acne returning in full force part of my neck may now be permanently scarred. Please go to someone else, I don't want anyone else to go through this.
My experience was a little different than the others. I was diagnosed by him as having "acne" -- and at my age. He and a resident together looked at my skin, made the determination and prescribed the appropriate meds. My skin is much, much better. I really have no complaints except for the long wait to see him.
