I am originally from Queens, New York, but I have lived in Atlanta since graduating high school. I completed all of my higher education in the Atlanta area at Emory University and Morehouse School of Medicine. My family is from Haiti, and the origins of my name are French. My first name is Moise, which is French for Moses, and all of my close friends call me Moses. In my neighborhood growing up, I always wanted to make a difference. I chose medicine as the path that will help me make a mark in people's lives by guiding them to prevent illness with healthy living and aiding them when they are sick. The mission at Kaiser Permanente is aligned with my practice philosophy and joining the team at Kaiser Permanente has been a great fit for me.
About my practice
I am one of the many primary care physicians at Kaiser Permanente. My practice is focused on prevention of disease, managing chronic conditions, and treating acute issues. I do this by using evidence-based medical practices and being guided by compassionate care. We do some procedures in our clinic, but the majority of our work is done through listening, examining and talking with members.
How I thrive
I believe we all exist for a purpose. In order to fulfill that purpose to the best of our abilities, the body and mind should be at its best. I thrive by exercising 30 minutes a day, five times a week. Sometimes I break the exercise up by doing 15-20 minutes of exercise before work by biking or lifting weights. I then will do 15-20 minutes of exercise after work with yoga or an at-home boot camp. I thrive by trying to stay positive, listening to music, praying and meditating, having sweet aromas (lavender or cinnamon) in my office and home, and spending quality time with family. Overall, I thrive the most when I am able to help someone else thrive, because that is part of my purpose in life.
