both visits to Dr. Musahl's office were very positive experiences in terms of how I was treated by all staff including assistants, PA, and Dr. Musahl - not thrilled to have an injury, but this provider and his staff have been excellent to work with

I got a cortisone shot which treated the pain in my knee but I STILL have a torn meniscus..am I going to need surgery at some point?

September 22, 2017

Dr. Musahl is hands down the kindest, most compassionate doctor I have ever come across in all my dealings with either working with physicians or being a patient!He always has a smile for you and got me and my husband through some rough shoulder surgeries! Simply the best!

Dr. Volker Musahl did an amazing job and I was so thrilled to have him as my surgeon. He really turned out to be the perfect person for he job and made me feel so much more comfortable than other surgeons have in the past, since i'm not a big fan of surgery. I could not believe how quick my recovery was compared to some other people that have told me about their surgery's for the same thing. I couldn't give him any higher recommendation, he deserves higher than a 10 on a 1-10 scale and every bit of my appreciation and gratitude!!
