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.

With Sutton Place Laser Vein Care your spider veins will look better and feel better.
Please note that patients often are not aware that they have symptoms related to vein disease, as they may not connect the symptoms to their veins, especially if they have no visible varicose or spider veins. The symptoms and physical findings of vein disease are surprisingly diverse (please see the Vein Treatments and Services page for more details), affect insurance coverage of vein treatments (please see the Insurance/Fees page for more details), and can be present just as frequently and just as severely even if no visible veins are present, so vein disease is often not only skin deep indeed!
