“The interactions I have on a personal level with patients and their families is the most rewarding part of my work. I think if you treat people the way that you would want your family to be treated there’s usually a good outcome.”
Dr. Mueller was born in Hazard, Kentucky to missionary parents and spent much of his childhood in Liberia. He moved back to the United States as a teenager to attend high school and college.
