I have visited Dr. Musahl on many occasions since 2010, and he has performed 2 surgeries on my right arm. I have a great deal of confidence in him based on the positive results I have experienced over the years. He is a very active person and relates well to my very active lifestyle.

March 21, 2017

Dr. Musahl took the time to hear my concerns and answer my questions but most importantly, he seemed to be genuine and caring when I know he deals with much more serious issues. I felt my issue was taken seriously and respectfully. Thank you!

Dr. Musahl is awesome!!!!! He is very kind and compassionate.

Dr. Volker Museal was excellent. He has both excellent technical knowledge and excellent interpersonal style. He had all of my information on his computer screen and invited me to view X-rays and MRI data while he explained my condition. In addition, Dr. Museal asked questions so that he could prescribe a rehab program that would fit my lifestyle. I left his office feeling very good about understanding my condition and options for moving forward. Lastly, Volker Museal has positive and hopeful approach, which I believe is an essential part of the doctor / patient relationship.

Dr. Volker, Jamie and their team did an amazing job. My ACL surgery was quick and painless. I had a fast recovery and excellent rehab treatment from Meredith and Tom at the UMPC Mario Lemieux Center.

Dr Musahl is terrific - very sensitive to my concerns; I was able to get an MRI right away and have an explanation for my symptoms from an injury, a plan and good advice about what to do.
