Dr. Mueller has been my Orthopedic Doctor for many years and has done several surgeries on me due to complications of Post Polio. Most recently he repaired my torn rotator cuff due to a bad fall. He is a great Surgeon and good listener, and has a very friendly, professional staff. I recommend everyone needing orthopedic care to visit Dr. Mueller.

Dr. Mueller is in demand so sometimes there is a bit of a wait..but he does not short change his patients. He is top of the list for no infections. In the last few weeks he did a great job with a 90 year old friend who fell and broke her hip. She was doing fine at Hemet Valley Healthcare'

My husband had an accident with a table saw Nov. 2012 that took off close to the first knuckle of the first 2 fingers on his left hand. Took him to the ER at Hemet and Dr. Mueller was the orthopedic surgeon on call. He was able to reattch the first finger but had to do a full thickness skin graft on the second finger using the part of the finger that was cut off. My husband received excellent care & follow up from Dr. Mueller and his staff.

Dr Mueller is an excellent surgon, he repaired my broken arm no other surgon would attempt to fix. Dr Muller took it on as a challenge. He spent 9 hrs in surgery repairing my arm installing pins and screws to a shattered elbow and arm. I now have full use of my right arm again thanks to Dr Muller.

Had 3 fingers severed in an accident and Dr Mueller performed my reattachement procedure. I am extremely grateful that Dr Mueller was able to save my fingers. In a very genuine and gentle way, Dr Mueller explained to me my recovery process and answered all my questions.

Dr. Mueller did surgery on my rotater cuff and I found him very professional and capable. He helped me a great deal and made it very easy to have confidence that everything was going to be fine. He got me right into physical therapy and I am already much better. In addition, he cares and addresses his patients' concerns. His office staff is under new management and improved 100 percent. I would highly recommend him.
