Dr. David Muller has the following 2 specialties
- Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine
An osteopath is a physician who is trained in the philosophy of osteopathic medicine. These doctors have a D.O. degree which stands for Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine, as opposed to M.D. for Medical Doctor.
Osteopathic medicine differs from conventional medicine, which is sometimes referred to as allopathic medicine, in that they incorporate a type of manual therapy called Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM) into their treatment in which they manipulate the spine in order to relieve pain when other methods have not been successful. This is reflective of the philosophical difference between the two types of physicians; osteopaths are trained to treat the body as a whole in the belief that the body is structured with the ability to heal itself while medical doctors treat specific illnesses or symptoms.
Overall, osteopaths and medical doctors in the US are both equally qualified to treat patients and they work in the same settings and provide the same treatments.

Dr. Muller was rude, dismissive, provided an inaccurate diagnosis which resulted in prolonged recovery, barely saw me during treatment, and made recommendations that my other physicians highly disagree with. He came recommended by a few people whose injuries were uncomplicated which makes me think that maybe his attitude & lack of care is a shield for his professional shortcomings! Do not see him for complex issues.
I read the other patient's negative comment and had to respond. I have seen Dr. Muller three times for arthritis in my hands, and he spent ample time with me each time and helped me greatly. I needed a letter written to my employer describing the difficulty I was having with fine motor skills and requesting other work duty I could perform. Dr. Muller wrote a beautiful letter recommending what I could do. The result was I was able to stay employed and continue to make a living. Dr Muller is an excellent doctor!
I think the headline says most of it, but after being sent to him by my family physician(after x-rays and an MRI),I was belittled. I was told my weight was my only problem even though my current ailment is unusual and I do exercise and have a regimen being as I live with Fibromyalgia and have for numerous years. I have battled weight for at least 10 years and at my thinnest best size for my bone structure, I was very thin and a size 9 at 155 lbs. He told be that I needed to lose AT LEAST 100 lbs, which would put me at 135 and anorexic in appearance. I am very offended and still in pain after my visit with him and at my next doctors visit I will ask them to pay for a bill that only amounted to a person reminding me that I have a weight problem and doing nothing for my current condition, whatever I guess that may be. At this point I'm clueless, and my doctors only want to view one tiny section at a time, and I guess in Dr.Mullers opinion, that would take a VERY long time with the size of my body. I even asked about the knee brace my doctor wanted me to go and BUY with my very low income family, and he told me that there was no purpose for it and that I wouldn't find one that would fit me anyway.
