Dr. Moses leads the Pain and Palliative Care Service at Angell. Dr. Moses is board certified in internal medicine and was a senior clinician in Angell’s Emergency and Critical Care service for 12 years. She has received advanced training in both human and veterinary pain medicine. This combination of training and experience enables Dr. Moses to manage complex cases requiring simultaneous treatment of multiple medical problems. As a result of the training, the Pain and Palliative Care Service is modeled after pain clinics created at human hospitals. Dr. Moses has also been trained and certified in veterinary medical acupuncture. She is an elected member of the International Veterinary Academy of Pain Management Board of Directors and lectures at many national conferences.

In addition to her clinical work, she is a bioethicist conducting research on veterinary ethics. Dr. Moses has over 15 years experience in Angell’s Emergency/Critical Care and Anesthesia departments and was one of the original members of Angell’s ECC team.

Under her direction, the Pain and Palliative Care Service provides advanced assessment of both chronic and acute pain and manages treatments accordingly. This includes multiple types of drug therapy, nerve blocks and other forms of local anesthesia for surgical and cancer pain, acupuncture and trigger point therapy and recommendations for physical therapy and lifestyle changes.
