I was referred to the doctor for kidney stones. My first visit was super rushed as I was told he had to leave early that day. My 2nd appointment for follow up was just as bad very rushed. I am a 55 year old man. He never even examined me, he sat at his computer not one time in either appointment did he do anything except type on his computer. Now I know I was there for stones oh yes he told me to drink a lot, But no Psa test etc. As a matter of fact he never asked about my health at all. He charged me 2 co-pays and now I will still have to see another doctor so I can feel confident that I am ok.

My husband's experience could not have been better! An excellent surgeon, an excellent man, Dr. Muhletaler did everything we needed with warm, attentive service. The office was very responsive and supportive. If you need his services, you will not find anyone better.

Muhletaler was a huge mistake. His staff was not supportive when complications occurred after surgery. Staff didn’t respond to numerous calls and gave simple advice. His MA gave medically dangerous advice, e.g., she advised that I should not go to the emergency room and should use a suppository. When Muhletaler visited me, twice, after being readmitted, he showed no remorse for his staff’s lack of support or the fact that I had two large abscesses at the surgery site. Later in his office he discounted the fact that I had a continuous fever and wrote me off at that point. As I write, it has been six weeks since the surgery and I am still recovering with the help of an infectious disease specialist and a gastroenterologist. Only giving one start as I did not die on the operating table.

Disappointing at best. Dr. Muhletaler was 1 hour late to the appointment. During the visit, he turned his back to me to be on his computer while I explained my symptoms. It was not only rude but he missed what I said. My husband had to reiterate it and only then did Dr. Muhletaler turn around and speak to me directly. He recommended that I have a simple procedure to look inside my bladder and reassured me that it wasn't painful. I was given a local numbing gel for the procedure. Once it began, it was apparent that it was going to be more painful than what I had been told. He continued on. Afterwards, as I was laying on the table in tears, breathing deeply, trying to control myself, he stood awkwardly by waiting. And then launched into a series of questions, which probably should have been asked in my 1st visit. His level of patient care is below par. Dr. Muhletaler treats his patients as if they are wasting his time. There is little to no explanation and/or empathy.

After I had my first appointment I had confidence going into the surgery. The surgery went well, however two weeks later one of the incisions became infected and I was hospitalized for nine days. Dr. Muhletaler saw me in the hospital and said that he had nothing to do with the issue and washed his hands of any responsibility for the infection. In addition to the infection I developed an abdominal hernia in the area of the original surgery. The hernia repair was completed in early February.

Dr. Muhletaler is great. He was very thorough in his case review and took the time to explain the diagnosis as well as answer any questions. The procedure went just as stated.

Was admitted unexpectedly to hospital with kidney stone attack. Staff told me he could not be reached to see same or next day. Took extra days until surgery performed with delays due to doc coordination. Had 2:15 appointment post op in office. Not seen until 4pm although I was told I was second patient. Put code in as office visit although short post surgical procedure was performed - cost me additional co-pay.
