Moza merges with Rome Surgical

General Surgeon, Dr. Shuban K. Moza, is merging his practice with Rome Surgical Specialists effective Jan. 1, Rome Memorial Hospital President/Chief Executive Officer Basil J. Ariglio said.

He will join surgeons Beth Bulawa, David Kulick and Kevin Harrison, at 1617 N. James St., in Suite 700A.

Moza has been serving residents of Rome and the surrounding area since he joined Rome Hospital’s medical staff in 1975. Dr. Moza will continue to follow his patients, who have consistently ranked him in the top 1 percent of physicians nationwide for patient satisfaction, hospital officials said.

"His many years of experience in private practice and his focus on clinical quality and patient satisfaction will help Rome Surgical Specialists fine tune its operations as we grow the practice," Ariglio said.

Dr. Moza completed his surgical residency at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx, and his fellowship in trauma surgery and critical care medicine at Westchester Medical Center, Valhalla. He is a senior fellow of the American College of Surgeons, a member of the American Society of Breast Surgeons, and a clinical assistant professor at SUNY Upstate Medical University, Syracuse.

"Our community is fortunate to have excellent surgeons close to home, so our friends and family don’t have to travel when they need care," Ariglio said. "All of our surgeons are board certified and embrace evidence-based practices to provide patients with the best possible outcomes."

The surgeons from Rome Surgical Specialists perform a broad range of procedures at Rome Hospital, including general surgery for breast, skin and colon cancers, gall bladder and thyroid disease, venous access procedures, appendicitis and hernia repair. Dr. Kulick also specializes in thoracic surgery.
