Dr. Moussa’s interest in Nephrology started during his Internal Medicine residency training which he completed at the Good Samaritan Hospital here in Cincinnati. The precision with which the kidneys are able to regulate fluids and eliminate waste products is a constant reminder of how vital they are to our health and well being.
As a result of this fascination with normal kidney function and the different modalities that exist to help treat patients once their kidney function declines to the point of needing dialysis, or better yet a kidney transplant, Dr Moussa decided to pursue further fellowship training at the University of Vermont.
He came back to Cincinnati to join the Kidney and Hypertension Center in 2009 to fulfill his wish of giving back to the program and city where he initially received his residency training. He is an integral part of the core faculty providing education to the Internal Medicine residents at the same residency program at Good Samaritan hospital. Dr. Moussa has been recognized for his teaching by the internal Medicine residency program with multiple awards which serves as a reminder of his dedication to educating future doctors that will serve this great city and others in the future.
Dr. Moussa has offices in two locations. The Good Samaritan office building and at Mercy West hospital. He has also been granted Cincinnati Magazine “Cincy Best doctors” award, a testament to the excellence in level of care that he strives to achieve for his patients.
Dr Moussa played both Tennis and Soccer in school and college and has continued to be an avid follower of both sports. More recently he has focused more on Tennis since both of his kids have adopted the sport themselves. When Dr. Moussa is not actively caring for his patients, he dedicates the rest of his time to his family, traveling or simply sitting around the dinner table enjoying the company of the people that he holds dearest to his heart.

Very positive experience at KHC. Dr. Moussa gave an easy-to-understand explanation of my condition and the medication to be changed. Answered all of my questions. The office staff was courteous, and the wait time to see Doctor was less than five minutes
We scheduled with Dr. A Moussa following a hospital visit, and this wonderful doctor is the main reason for scheduling there
Staff is professional and courteous. Dr. Moussa is totally awesome: great bedside manners, professional, knowledgeable, and above all, LISTENS and HEARS.
