Meet Dr. Romer Mosquera, CCH's February 2017 Provider of the Month

Meet Dr. Romer Mosquera, CCH's February 2017 Provider of the Month

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 the CCH Provider of the Month for February 2017Dr. 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.
