Dr. Mueller is the finest physician I have ever had. I have entrusted my life in his hands for over 15 years and he is the only Doc I would empower to be my medical team leader. His judgment and diagnostic & communication abilities are impeccable, as is his medical advocacy on my behalf. He actually listens, gives me full attention, and truly cares. He is always reachable immediately; I couldn’t be happier in the concierge program, which gives me extra security and confidence and I love the instant priority, no wait appointments, as well as the value, added tests that would not normally be covered.

Those with the highest scores were awarded the designation of “Patients’ Choice” physicians.

Of these that receive rave reviews, only physicians with near perfect scores have been voted by their patients for this honor.
