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 !

(for both - affiliated as an adjunct faculty member, but Dr. Mueller does not admit to or follow patients in the hospital; his patients are cared for by hospital full time physicians / hospitalist physicians)

St. John's Riverside Hospital, Yonkers, NY

Hospitalists are physicians specialized in delivering top quality inpatient care.

After discharge, our patients return to our outpatient care and follow up with us.

For any plan that we do not participate with but accept out of network benefits (if you have such benefits), we will accept the amount your insurance pays us as payment in full and you will not have any extra costs other than any applicable deductible. You will receive a check in the amount of our services from your insurance company; this payment belongs to us & thus must be turned over to us ASAP.

Please note that when we do accept any insurance, it is your full & personal financial responsibility to pay any & all co-pays, coinsurances, and deductibles in a timely fashion without carrying debt with us. Deductibles also apply for out of network benefits. Having insurance coverage does not always equate to free care; these terms are dictated not by us, but by the details of the contract you have with your insurance provider.

When we refer you to another provider or to a hospital, we will give you their relevant contact information. We urge you to inquire and determine if such providers / hospitals participate with your insurance or not (in network or out). You can determine this by asking their office by telephone, by checking their website, or by inquiring online or by phone with your insurance plan.
