    Dr. Moscinski is a Senior Member and Chair, Hematopathology and Laboratory Medicine at Moffitt Cancer Center as well as the Chief Academic Officer and Medical Director, Bone Marrow Biopsy Service and the Scientific Director, Liquid Tissue Bank. She holds the title of Professor and Chair, Department of Oncologic Sciences at USF Health. Dr. Moscinski is board certified in Pathology-Hematology and Anatomic/Clinical Pathology. She did her Fellowship at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania in Hematopathology and her residency at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center in Pathology. She earned her medical degree at the Medical College of Wisconsin. Dr. Moscinski’s research interests are in the identification of new biomarkers for diagnosis and risk stratification in myelodysplasia, by both molecular and flow cytometric methods. She is a long term collaborator with both clinicians and scientists at Moffitt working in the field of myeloid disorders, and as the medical director of the Moffitt Liquid Tissue Bank, has a strong interest in improving methods for banking, storage and utilization of human tissue specimens for research.

  • Patient Comments

    Overall Satisfaction


    0 patients rated this provider

    The Provider Rating is an average of all responses to specific care provider-related questions from our nationally-recognized Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the best score.

    Patients that are treated in outpatient or hospital environments may receive different surveys, and the volume of responses will vary by question.

    Learn more about our patient satisfaction survey



    Comments are gathered from specific care provider-related questions from our Patient Satisfaction Survey . The comments are submitted by patients and reflect their views and opinions. Patients are de-identified for confidentiality and patient privacy.

    We post both positive and negative comments from the surveys. We do not post comments that are libelous, slanderous, profane, irrelevant or otherwise inappropriate or may risk the privacy of our patients. A “[…]” in the comments below indicates de-identified patient information or comments that are unrelated to the patient’s experience with the visit to the provider, such as comments related to another provider, about the survey itself, or otherwise completely off-topic.

    Not all providers will have a star rating or comments. In order to ensure accuracy of our ratings, we only display ratings for providers who have a minimum of 30 completed from the previous 12 months.

    Learn more about our patient comments

    Provider Ratings and comments are gathered from our nationally-recognized Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. If a provider does not have ratings or comments listed it can be for several reasons, including:

    • The provider has not yet received the minimum number of patient satisfaction surveys to be eligible for display. We require a minimum of 30 surveys before we post results to ensure that the rating is statistically reliable and a true reflection of patient satisfaction.
    • He or she may be a researcher or other type of provider that does not see patients.
    • The provider practices in a specialty or office that does not use the specified surveys currently used for these ratings.
