Our physicians are experts... and great people too! Meet
Romer Mosquera, MD, CCH's February 2017 Provider of the Month.
Medicine was just a part of the family for
CCMG neurologist Dr. Romer Mosquera. Both his father and great uncle were physicians, and
Dr. Mosquera remembers walking down the halls of his father’s hospital
at the tender age of five.
Dr. Mosquera attended medical school in his home country of Venezuela,
and completed his neurology residency and fellowships in Clinical Neurophysiology
and Pain Management at
SUNY Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, NY.
According to Dr. Mosquera, scientific advancements have really changed
his field of neurology since he completed his medical training, especially
in the treatment of diseases like multiple sclerosis (MS). With diagnostic
tools like MRI and new medications, patients with MS can avoid relapses
and have a much better quality of life. The prospect of MS patients facing
life in a wheelchair within 15-20 years has changed dramatically for the better.
Because many of Dr. Mosquera’s patients have chronic diseases, or
are referred to him for complex conditions, he may care for them for many
years. He worries that the pace of modern medicine makes it hard to take
the time needed to delve into the small things that give clues to a patient’s
diagnosis, like questioning their sleep habits and even getting their
vision checked. He gets to know his patients very well, and says that
the time spent in those relationships are what makes us human.
Dr. Mosquera and his family love to travel, and incorporate their three
children, ages 1, 3 and 8 into everything they do. His wife,
Dr. Roberta Moro, is a pediatrician at Bighorn Pediatrics in Gillette. When they travel,
they try to ‘go local’ and experience how people live their
daily lives instead
staying at a tourist hotel or resort.
Thank you Dr. Mosquera, for providing our patients with excellent care.
