Dr. Fred Moss has been in the psychiatric field continually for over 35 years, and has had extensive experience in multiple mental health sub-disciplines during that time. He has experienced multiple facets of many different areas, including but not limited to inpatient, outpatient, residential, rehabilitation, orphanages, clinic settings and homelessness. He has taken care of thousands of patients in nearly all age groups and settings, as a primary caretaker, supervisor and as an objective reviewer of his peers.

He has an appreciation for how outcomes of care may or may not have been foreseeable or related to the actual interventions provided. He reviews national level cases daily so as to stay on the cutting edge of all treatment modalities.
