Dr. Muse's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Muse "I became a doctor because I love people and I love the fascinating science of the human body. "

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Muse "Being a family doctor is more enjoyable every year that I am in practice, and that is primarily because of the wonderful patients that I rub shoulders with in my practice. I enjoy hearing about my patient's successes in their personal lives and I grieve with them for their losses. I take seriously my role as an adviser to my patients as they decide what is best for their health care. I study long hours to stay up to date on the latest treatments and guidelines, so that I can teach my patients about their diseases and the options that they have to chose from in treating their diseases. I listen carefully to my patients."

I have been going to Dr. Muse for over 10 years now. He is extremely knowledgeable. I was having a few problems that were hard to explain but caused me to be in great pain and was debilitating. He immediately ordered blood work and had my diagnosis very quickly. He was then able to refer me to a very good Rheumatologist that has helped me greatly. He is always up to date with the latest information. He is amazing.

He explains things so well and is up on all new things going on in the medical field. You couldn't ask for a better Dr.

I already have referred several friends and family to Dr. Muse and they have all been as happy as I. I've been going to him for most of my adult life (over 15 years) and he is ALWAYS a professional, caring, knowledgeable resource for my health care needs. When I was a newlywed and did not have insurance, he personally did everything he could to lower my costs and even gave me samples instead of making me fill a prescription. He is a great doctor!

Dr. Muse is generally concerned about his patients. My experience with him over several years has been pleasurable and informative. I would highly recommend him but knowing how busy he gets, I would like to see the practice scaled back only to have shorter scheduling for urgent care. He is by far a very good care provider and listener.

I came to Dr. Muse due to another doctor's temp absence at Highland. As a result of insurance change and 1000% increased medication cost, Dr. Muse and I set up a preferable,lower cost option for chronic pain . At NO TIME did he make me feel immoral,unethical or like a criminal (so common in the pain treatment world). He is accessible, patient, effective, caring, has no inflated ego and has a GREAT support staff that reflects his own superb approach. Best in class! I recommend Dr. Muse highly.
