    Dr. Muhler took time to explain the procedures in great detail, very clear and easy to understand. Even though our appointment was for 15 minutes, he took the necessary time to help me understand all of the information.

    Really liked Dr Mueller, very warm and made me feel comfortable . I also was 15 minutes late because of my medical ride and they were very gracious to let me have my appointment anyway

  • Oct 21, 2019

    It was great to talk about one of the provider because he was explaining all the weeks regarding the surgery that I will have later, and it was pretty clear. Thank you.

  • Oct 20, 2019

    I appreciated the provider and the clinic, but the wait time was extremely long and it made us frustrated and my son was late to school.

  • Oct 20, 2019

    Reid Mueller is an excellent physician.

  • Oct 19, 2019

    Excellent information provided by doctor

  • Oct 18, 2019

    Dr. Mueller is a phenomenal doctor and surgeon. He did my first abdominoplasty many years ago and I returned to him after a car accident. After going to other doctors, Dr. Mueller was the only doctor who was able to identify the issue and fixed it. If not for his skills and expertise, I’d never been able to resolve my injury. I’m indebted to him. Another thing about Dr. Mueller is that he’s easy to talk to. He does not have an air about him and he knows how to relate to his patients. He’s funny and easy going. I just can’t say enough about him.

  • Oct 16, 2019

    I have seen Dr. Mueller several times and he is always professional and comforting. I am very confident with his opinions, and skills as a surgeon. Excellent bedside manner; no arrogance. Down to earth

    Dr Mueller was excellent. Professional and respectful. I felt like he really heard me, and eased my anxiety. He's clearly been doing this for a long time, and it was a relief to find a surgeon that I could trust.

  • Aug 21, 2019

    Dr. Mueller is straight forward and thorough, with a sense of humor as well.

    This was a second time in surgery with OHSU and Dr Mueller. Everything went well, staff was efficient and capable.

  • Aug 14, 2019

    I have had 6 surgeries with Dr Mueller in the past 2 years. He is an amazing doctor and I would highly recommend him. The results speak for themselves. Minimal scarring, great reconstructive results, very little pain in recovery and he is nothing but professional and polite.

  • Aug 13, 2019

    Wonderful. Explained everything as he did it.

  • Aug 08, 2019

    I am extremely impressed with Dr. Mueller and his team. Everyone was so nice and accommodating and very professional. Before the surgery Dr. Mueller took his time to answer any more questions I had about the procedure. I was very comfortable with him, the nurses and the anesthesiologist team.

  • Aug 07, 2019

    For me the doctor is good. Excellent. Thank you. I have nothing more to say. All of my appointments are very good. Thank you.

  • Jun 29, 2019

    Yes, if you're talking about, [Name]  ... if you're talking about Dr. Mueller, who is up on the 27th, we were really impressed with him. We really liked him. Thought he showed great concern. He also asked if we had other questions. He didn't get up to leave or anything until he knew that we were through. He explained everything from the very beginning to the end. I don't think he left anything out in between. Told us even after some of the things that we would maybe would do afterwards. We were just more than impressed with him. So, thank you very much.

  • Jun 28, 2019

    Dr. Mueller was very informative. He told me every single thing he was going to do and everything he said really did happen. He was very professional. His staff was excellent. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

    Look, after 10 surgeries I survived. Let's call that good. Okay.

  • May 29, 2019

    Dr mueller is an amazing surgeon. I’m very blessed to have such an amazing doctor, my previous doctors in Salem wouldn’t help me with my skin problems, dr mueller has started to change my whole life. I didn’t think anyone could do these surgeries for HS, but he did and he is very up front and I like that. So I’m glad I came to ohsu

  • May 24, 2019


  • May 23, 2019

    Dr. Mueller is very re-assuring, but also reviewed and made sure I understood the risks and things that could go wrong with the surgery. He answered my post-surgery questions, and recommended scar-reducing products.

  • May 16, 2019

    It was obvious that the Dr had not read the referral much less the pathology report before we got there. He had no idea who we were, why we were there or anything. I was not impressed and if we decide to have our son going through this surgery, we will be seeking another surgeon.

  • May 16, 2019

    Thoughtful comments and willingness to explain concepts and recommendations

  • May 09, 2019

    Hey, I'm totally satisfied with every my entire experience with both Dr. Mueller's team, the staff, nurses, and the OHSU hospital in general. You've all been very respectful and kind and you do great work.

  • May 04, 2019

    Compassionate, professional and easy to talk to

  • May 03, 2019

    Dr. Mueller seemed very knowledgeable, capable, and willing to listen and answer questions.
