As a family physician, Dr. Dan Moscow helps patients of all ages with their medical needs, from temporary problems to long-standing conditions, and he views each patient as a whole person. With an eye on wellness, he seeks to assist his patients to achieve their health goals. Doctor Moscow uses evidence based medicine as the platform for his care, customized to an individual’s experience and values. He recognizes that medical science and technology are great resources for health, but so are the intrinsic qualities and connections of our minds, bodies, and spirits.
Dr. Dan Moscow is fortunate for his varied endeavors. After college (Oberlin College, B.A., with honors in biology) and graduate school (University of California, Berkeley, M.S. in plant pathology) he served in the Peace Corps as an agricultural extension specialist in Thailand. Then, moving toward medicine, he worked in hearing research at the University of Michigan before entering the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine with a merit award. The Chestnut Hill Family Practice Residency Program brought him to Philadelphia. His medical school and residency training included patient care roles in Haiti, Swaziland, and a migrant farmworkers clinic. He has authored journal publications in botany, wildlife biology, plant pathology, and otolaryngology.
“I just saw Dr Moscow for a checkup. As a newer patient, I wanted to say what a breath of fresh air he is! It’s an amazing thing when your provider listens to your input, carefully considers what you have to say, and takes the time to explain things. I really feel like I have a partner in my health rather than someone just telling me what to do!! Thank you Dr Moscow!”
Doctor Moscow feels privileged to have practiced in a variety of settings and with patients from all walks of life. In his first positions, with Temple Physicians and then Mark Hurowitz, DO, PC, he worked in the Northeast, Frankfort, Kensington, and Fishtown neighborhoods, including inpatient care at Northeastern Hospital. Then he spent many worthwhile years at Spectrum Community Health Center in West Philadelphia. In 2016, he joined Family Practice Associates of Upper Dublin, where he is very pleased to contribute to the attentive and excellent patient care that this group has provided the community for over a generation.
Daniel Moscow, MD, is board certified in family medicine and is a member of The American Medical Association, The American Academy of Family Physicians, and the Pennsylvania Academy of Family Physicians. He is a member of the medical staff at Abington Hospital.
Dan Moscow’s community activities include the Allens Lane Art Center (board member), Montgomery Community College (an advisory committee member) and Springboard Sangha. He lives in Northwest Philadelphia with his wonderful wife and their two teenage children who keep them sharp. Dr. Moscow has many interests; perhaps foremost is cross-country skiing, and he always welcomes snow to Upper Dublin.
