“I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Richard Mueller at his Vein and Laser Institute. His eye for detail and concern for the patient’s wants and needs are something i rarely have come across in my visits to other doctors offices.

“I have been a patient of Dr. Mueller’s for years. Dr. Mueller is thorough, thoughtful, knowledgeable, open minded and most importantly a terrific listener. Most doctors make no eye contact and see you for 15 minutes. Dr. Mueller is very attentive and takes the time to listen to your concerns and work collaboratively. The only problem is there are not many doctors like Dr. Mueller so you will probably be very disappointed with your other doctors. Dr. Mueller is the best.”

I give thanks to God and to Dr Mueller and all the people that in one way or another have made it possible for this miracle.

No more pain – no more swelling !!! “

(I’m a septuagenarian and, thanks to his treatment, I’m still able to do a heavy weight workout at the gym and speedwalk 20+ miles per week.) In addition to being an excellent cardiologist, always aware of the latest studies and treatments and willing to discuss the pros and cons thereof, Dr. Mueller is a caring and compassionate physician who will spend as much time answering a patient’s questions and explaining in layman’s terms as the patient requires. His reputation as one of the best cardiologists in New York is well deserved.”

– Charles H.

Dr. Richard Mueller is one of the finest physicians in New York City. I have complex medical issues that have perplexed many specialists for over 15 years. Dr. Mueller is always thorough, respectful, methodical and compassionate. I have been to many other doctors who just gave up on my medical problems. Dr. Mueller is organized, has a very competent and respectful staff, has cable news and computers for use in his waiting room, and is able to perform many tests right his office, which saves patients time and expense. Dr. Mueller is a perfect combination of an obviously brilliant physician and an extremely caring person.

Having a physician who is thorough, scientific in his approach and who takes the necessary time to explain things and answer questions is enormously important for anyone with a complex illness. Sometimes there is await in the waiting room, but it is well worth it. Dr. Mueller’s physician colleagues are also as thorough and skilled as he is. Trust me, I’ve been to literally scores of not so great MD’s in NYC, and Dr. Mueller is without a doubt one of the best and one of the very very good ones. I hope I can find just as good MD’s where I am moving to !

I will miss you so much [patient relocating]. You’re an amazing doctor, and the world is lucky to have you.You know it’s my opinion that you’re one of the best MDs in the world. I hope I can find an MD as amazing and wonderful as you after I relocate from NYC.

Testimonials for Dr. David Mack…

“I am extremely pleased with the medical treatment I’ve received from Dr. David Mack. I’ve been to many physicians during my lifetime. Dr. Mack stands out because he CARES about his patients. Yes, I’m happy with the medical results he’s achieved so far with me, but even more importantly his caring attitude strikes me as rare (unfortunately) in the medical profession. As a Dentist, I too treat patients, so I recognize professionalism when I experience it. When my patients need a recommendation to a physician, I tell them David Mack is my guy. David is a very smart, caring physician. The medical profession needs many more like him.”

– Brian W.

Dr. Mueller’s physician colleagues are also as thorough and skilled as he is.

* Note: As with all medical treatments, individual results may indeed vary, and these results may not be typical. At Sutton Place Laser Vein Care we spend a great deal of time addressing patient’s treatment expectations, the variable results of treatment, and the fact that no vein treatments offer a cure of venous disease, given its progressive nature. The risks, benefits, potential side effects, and alternatives of each vein treatment option are carefully discussed with each patient, and all questions are answered. The step by step nature of each procedure is discussed in detail with each patient, in addition to realistic results expectations. Individual results after vein treatments vary widely; EVL typically will eliminate or significantly diminish pain and other vein symptoms, and in general will reduce or eliminate varicose veins in approx. half of cases; generally, approx. half of EVL patients may require secondary procedures like sclerotherapy and/or phlebectomy. Sclerotherapy either eliminates or significantly reduces injected veins in approx. 70% of cases. Phlebectomy also reduces or eliminates treated veins in the majority of cases. Given the chronic and progressive nature of venous disease, no treatment can prevent new veins from appearing, except for those emanating from veins closed or eliminated. Vein treatments, especially sclerotherapy, may have to be repeated over time.
