About Me

Care Philosophy

Neurology entails the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerve, neuromuscular junction and muscle. It involves the taking of a detailed history, performing a detailed neurological exam, developing a list of possible diagnoses and then narrowing down that list so that a treatment can be discussed with a patient.

What People Say About Dr. William Musser, MD
Dr. Musser squeezed me in at very short notice (1 day) as I was just visiting Pittsburgh. He was very pleasant and thorough. I was in and out of his office in 20 minutes (I think this must be a record). He diagnosed me with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and gave me an Rx for a wrist guard. After wearing it 1 day I experienced ~80% reduction in symptoms. Outstanding! Thank you!
