I actually look forward to my visit to the dermatologist because of Dr. Muz. He is extremely professional and truly cares about his patients. When I had to be treated for melanoma I honestly felt comfortable knowing I could not be in better hands. I could not recommend him more highly

Always excellent. Occasionally entertaining. Occasionally not quite enough numbing agent- but rarely. EXTREMELY competent.

He discovered a melanoma I did not even notice. He is thorough in his exam and listens to me. Excellent at stitches - nearly invisible scars

As always AP Derm's staff is friendly, helpful, and professional. Also, it's a comfortable environment. My mother, wife, daughter and myself have been AP Derm clients for decades. Dr Muz, in particular, is a wonderful and thoughtful doctor who is easy to talk with and he conveys his knowledge in a manner that is easily understood. We have always felt well taken care of and as such we have referred our family and friends to Dr Muz and AP Derm.

I saw Dr. Muz for a biopsy and excision on the recommendation of my main dermatologist, also at AP Derm. It was a horrible experience. I needed to resolve a couple of questions about the procedure; he scoffed at my anxiety, sneered at the guidance of the recommending physician and radiologist, and then proceeded to scorn the idea of a biopsy, calling the procedure entirely routine. Well... it wasn't. The cyst proved deeper and more challenging to remove than he anticipated. A year later, it came back--and as the different dermatologist who removed it explained, it was because Dr. Muz hadn't removed it in its entirety. His poor bedside manner and arrogance leads to negligence.
