Dr. Muelheims has been a most proactive provider of cardiac care [...] He also, conveyed a strong recommendation to my surgeon at Swedish Cancer Center in Seattle to consider surgery. [...] I owe my future longevity of life to God who utilizes doctors and health care givers to carry out His blessings of extended life. Dr. Muelheims figures highly on this list of doctors who have helped preserve my life. I am convinced that God directed me to become a patient of Dr. Muelheims. May God bless Dr. Muelheims. [...]

hard to get appointment for follow up visit in 6 months or 1 year. hard to coordinate appointments for cardiac, primary and Coumadin clinic all on the same day due to schedule not going out that far.

I received a reminder call in June to schedule a yearly appointment. Nothing was available until the end of August and they did not have a schedule beyond that time. I was told to call back at the end of August. I did, and received an appointment in September. This is not an issue for me but may have been for another patient.

I was given a green sheet that asked about my health and any issues. The doctor never referred to this sheet and not interested in any topics checked. How fast could he get out of the room. When we are talking heart issues it is very important to talk to the patient.

Upon leaving the office, the after visit summary stated that I was to DC spironolactone, but this had not been discussed during my office visit. Within 10 days I gained 7.5 lb. of fluid. So I, myself, started taking the spironolactone, notified the provider's nurse and she confirmed to start back on the medicine.

Dr. Muelheims has been my cardiologist for approx. the past 8 years. During that time he has performed two cardiac ablations and all necessary processes before and after each. His treatment has been mostly successful, he is very congenial and respectful. I have developed a trust in him as my Dr. that is very valualble to me.

I had an initial problem with locating the correct fax number for my referral to go to. I talked with several people there and was given 3 different fax numbers for my doctor here to send the referral to. The first two were wrong and that was not known until I called to check. This resulted in it taking a month to get the information to you. I was very happy with the office staff and doctor once I got there.
