dr. mueller and his staff .. i have not words enough to describe them. compassionate competent patient centered . empathic. thorough . i do not think i had ever experienced care of this quality before . not about my arthritis anyway. i wish i had met him long ago. go see him. take your questions. he will answer them. and he will stun you with the depth of his knowledge and breadth of his intellect. i wish there were ten stars. i am left to make my own decisions about my bones , but i know have benefit of his information.. and awareness that ,yes, there is at least one physician who concerns himself with the quality of my life . very generous .... patient .... and respectful. his staff. oh. an amazing . wonderful. i was very very glad to have them assist me . and .. they did . they bent over backwards to help. they even laughed at my jokes. wonderful experience . even with stage four arthritis. how's that!!!!

So far, experience with Dr. Mueller has been good. As far as getting in touch with the front office via phone, has been challenging. Medical staff communicates well through email, otherwise communication would be difficult via telephone. Front office never answers. I always get the operator.

Extremely busy doctor, but spends enough time to make sure you understand what he is going to do. He listens very well and responds appropriately. Very knowledgeable. Been going to him for about 10 years after Dr Stevenson retired. His P.A. Dale is very knowledgeable as well.

Make sure to never no show for two appointments because if this happens they will ban you from their practice FOR LIFE. No matter how many years it's been since that occurred. Amazing customer service!
