    Excellent Doctor. I've been going to Dr Muller for quiet awhile now. He's always on top of things. Very smart and attentive to all questions. He's the only cardio dr who has helped me control my issues and always gets back to me if I need help. Love him
    in Salt Lake City, UT |
    I had several leg surgeries and treatments with them and I've never had such an unprofessional encounter with a doctor's office. I endured wait times that went up to an hour. The entire staff complains about one another or the doctor. I had to schedule everything weeks in advance and the day before my last appointment I received a voice message saying they wouldn't treat me unless I reached out to my insurance company to resolve their failure to process paperwork correctly. I never went back. It
