Dr. Musahl is an excellent provider. Having experienced his professionalism, knowledge and concern, I will always return to him.

September 07, 2017

I would recommend Dr Musahl to anyone. He has exceptional bedside manners and despite his social status is so down to earth and personable.

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!!

they did an amazing job. can't wait for the next check up

August 22, 2017

I was seen for shoulder and upper arm pain. After Dr. Musahl went through a series of tests, he realized that the source of my problem may be my neck. Even though he is not a neck specialist, he had x-rays taken of my neck which revealed Arthritis in my vertebrae which he felt was causing the pain. He prescribed a steroid pack which alleviated most of my pain. He recommended physical therapy and referred me to a neck specialist. I appreciate the fact that he took the time to give me temporary relief than just passing me off to another specialist which would have prolonged my agony. He has performed surgery on my daughter in the past and is excellent.
