Palm Harbor, FL |
I had an appointment with Dr. Muller and arrived a little before to fill out paperwork as I was instructed, the girls at the front desk were very nice and helpful. When I was finished with my paperwork I was called right back by one of the technicians. There were a lot of tests and images but it all seemed standard and they answered all of my questions. I waited in the waiting room while my eyes dilated before I got called back to another room for the refraction test and to see the doctor. Dr.

Wants you to use her In House diagnosis lab even if your lab work up to date, by another Dr. Stubborn and insistent you repeat unneeded eye test, or will withhold a refill on my needed eye drop to keep my long standing glaucoma under control!! Dr. Muller does not return calls in person when there is a dispute, and you call the office. Office manager Tim, decides policy disputes, but should be handled by her. Very unprofessional Dr. No follow up, uncaring. Just wants to increase revenue, exams!

Dr. Muller is an exceptional physician. She is patient & informative. She takes the time to review medical history, listen to the patient, educate & answer questions. She is never rushed & extremely knowledgeable! I had an experience with diminished eyesight that was quite alarming to me. She calmly explained what was happening & arranged for the surgery. She was available for phone calls after hours when I had an allergic reaction to medication. She literally called back within 4 min.

She is highly knowledgeable, skilled and caring. She is not what I would call a 'warehouse' doctor.....no huge waiting room with tons of patients. A patient will see her personally...and her support staff are helpful and have good attitudes. I came to her with an emergency situation and she immediately took me in as a new patient, correctly diagnosed my issue, gave me emergency laser surgery and then followed up continuously for weeks. I am indebted to her---and would highly recommend her!

Had a cataract removed ......next appt ...i was asked if i could see....nope everything blurry ...pressure high in my eye thru testing right then and there.....immediately sent to retina specialist ......pucker behind my eye ........another operation by retina specialist to remove pucker ......pressure still high ..many visits back checking on pressure ....the cataract was tiny and I'm thinking should have been left alone...I saw better before removal.....IMHO..
