She is EXACTLY what a doctor should be like.” 

“I was so pleased with everything – I don’t even know how, but you had notes from my hysterectomy that was 20 years ago in Oregon! Dr. Moses was wonderful and very knowledgeable about my history; I was very happy to not have to explain everything to her. She was warm, very empathetic and put me at ease instantly. Overall, it was a very, very wonderful experience!!”

“Dr Sylvia Moses is amazing… she is always caring, professional, empathetic, kind, goes above and beyond to provide the best possible care, she’s patient, and always has a good attitude. She is the “good doctor” blueprint as far as I’m concerned. Other doctors should take notes. I appreciate her, and the front desk, the MA, and the blood-draw tech were all great as well. This is the best women’s health practice in Anchorage. It would be a cold day in hell before I switched offices or providers. Thank you to the team here, you’re all more appreciated than you know.”
