Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Mueller "friendly, efficient, caring interactions are the core of Dr Mueller's philosophy

communication in clear, easy to understand, respectful manner

a time tested and proven communicator who can discuss complex topics with everyone

eye contact, reviewed consistently as a great listener, compassionate

your health care advocate

always respects patient wishes and preferences and lays out options, explains results and conditions

always going the extra 100 miles for our patients. i have routinely hunted down reports from major hospitals for patients who were told; 'everything was normal' only to find important abnormalities that the hospitals somehow let slip

my 20 yrs in practice has generated intense patient loyalty as they know i am the one they can count on"
