He is the best around. Broke arm and in pain. He took me in right away and was able to relieve my pain and after a couple trips to his office I was back in order. He is funning and very caring.

I would never refer or see this doctor again. He was rude & uncaring. He wouldn't even take the time to review my MRI because he said he didn't believe in them. I suffered a great deal of pain that he ignored.

When I had emergency hip surgery away from home and needed a follow up doctor in town, he was the only one who would even schedule an appointment. Excellent care and concern.

March 2015 I fell and totally shattered my left elbow. Dr. Mulhern rebuilt it to like new condition. I have full use of it--a real miracle , especially if you saw the X-rays after the fall. He was always considerate and caring.

He doesn't...more
