My 14 year old son had a football injury that resulted in a torn meniscus and dislocated kneecap. I researched orthopedic surgeons and based on his specialties, experience, and reviews on here, I knew I wanted my son to see Dr Mullen. It took a few phone calls to finally get a quick appointment, but I’m so glad I kept at it. We had a great experience with Dr Mullen. He took the time to answer all of our questions, he went over the procedure with great detail, and was able to do the surgery the following week. All follow up appointments went great. Dr Mullen has a great bedside manner, he’s not arrogant, was very caring. His entire staff has been courteous, professional, and extremely responsive. Thanks to a freak basketball injury my son required a second surgery and we have had the same great results this go around also. We are so impressed with Dr Mullen and his team that he is doing my shoulder surgery in a couple months to repair a rotator cuff, labrum, and bicep tear.

My 16 year old daughter had knee surgery (severely torn meniscus) by Dr. Mullen. He got her into surgery two days after initially seeing my daughter! (I think he came in on his day off!) Dr. Mullen is a great guy! He explained everything in detail and even showed video! He always entered the room at follow-up visits with a smile and took the time to listen to all her pt reports and answer all questions. There is no doubt, we would highly recommend Dr Mullen!

I just saw Dr. Mullen for my follow up for both hips. As always, he came in with a smile. We visited for a few minutes and as usual, he was very kind and caring! It is very easy and comforting talking to him because he listens to me. I look forward to seeing him for my next follow up. Thank you Dr. Mullen for being you! You are the best and I appreciate you very much! Patty Miner

I showed up early for my appointment, I waited to be roomed, the was placed in my room and forgot about. No one came in to see me. I eventually walked out because no one updated me or came in to help me. I waited for more than an hour and a half with no communication. I’m sorry, but that is in acceptable. I still need questions answered about my knee , but now need to reschedule.

Dr. Scott Mullen did a Total Hip Replacement on my left hip in December 2018. I had arthritis bone on bone in my lift hip socket. I was getting to the point I couldn't walk, and when I did walk, I was exhausted, and in SO MUCH pain to say the least. After surgery,I had a few weeks of PT, and exercise to build up my mussels, and healing of the I.T. band,..TOTAL SUCCESS! I was up and back in my cross training class by March 2019! It is now August 2019, and I forget I even had surgery! It is so WONDERFUL to have NO pain in my hip what so ever , and my energy level is BACK! I find myself doing things I did when I was in my 30s' I was 69 when I had my replacement, and needless to say that was the BEST decision I ever made! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Dr Mullen and his team of specialists for ALL your Orthopedic needs! I PROMISE you will not be disappointed! Dr Scott Mullen, I THANK YOU! God Bless

Three years ago, I had a torn ACL. I had previously torn my other ACL so I knew what the rehab process consisted of. Dr. Mullen explained everything I had any questions on. I was able to contact his office when I had any questions about my surgery. Then 6 months later I had to have another knee surgery. I was disappointed with this whole thing but Dr. Mullen was able to calm my fears. He was able to look into what he was planning to do and he decided it would be best to break my shin and try to help so I wouldn't be bow legged. This would help with my recovery and since he was already going to be there then it would help with prevention. I was glad he really looked into everything and tried to look at what would be best for me. I am now recovered from all the surgeries. Able to do crossfit. Sometimes I have to do things modified but I am able to go to the gym and workout. Dr. Mullen has really helped me continue my health and fitness goals. I would recommend him to anyone

I was very pleased with Dr Mullen in every way. He read my records and examined my scans. He was a respectful communicator--both in listening and in expressing his thoughts and recommendation.

I’m a PT so had more questions than the average patient might about hip labrum surgery. I found Dr. Mullen wasn’t very tolerant of these questions — made me feel like I was annoying him rather than taking a few minutes to ease my mind. Maybe he’s a great surgeon if you don’t know much about your hips, but he didn’t appear to have time or patience for someone who does.

About Me

My practice focuses on the management of orthopedic conditions, specifically sports related injuries. I apply my subspecialized training to treat these injuries without surgery when possible, but I also have the advanced surgical training in arthroscopic surgery to treat with surgery when needed.
