Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Outstanding surgeon who cares for his patients. He explains the procedures well and is available to answer questions. He has a very nice office and staff. As a patient you are admitted to one unit and get discharged from that unit after surgery.

This doctor neglects his patients. Doesn't take a good care. He thinks about business, not about outcome after the surgery. Strongly recommend do not believe him and do not choose him as a surgeon.

In addition to saving my husbands life, he is the most professional physician I have ever met. He took the time to explain everything to us. ...good bad and ugly! He also spoke with me in private consult room in hospital (one of very very few) to protect privacy, but ensure everything went great. His appearance is always top notch- even pressed scrubs

Dr. Mueller saved my life, literally! I cannot thank him enough! He was called at night to operate on me and he came immediately because I would not have made it through the night!

Doctor Mueller did a thoracobifemoral bypass graft on me, and basically saved my life. Was complicated surgery. He has a very likeable personality. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who needed his services. Although I do not care for his PA - Heather. I thought she was very snooty and spoke down to me when I asked questions.
