INITIAL CONSULTATION

Initial Consultation with Dr. Mueller

 

Before Your Initial Consultation

Prior to your initial consultation, Dr. Mueller will review all of your medical records in order to streamline your visit.  If your primary care physician is in the Northwestern Medicine Network, or if you have been a patient at any Northwestern Medicine Network Hospital, Dr. Mueller will have access to your medical history and any diagnostic studies that have been performed.  If you have not been a patient in a Northwestern Medicine Hospital, then you will receive a medical history form to be filled out prior to your consultation.  If you have any medical records or diagnostic studies from another hospital that are pertinent to your visit, please contact Dr. Mueller's nurse, Angie Weldon, at (312) 695-8918 for assistance in transferring these records prior to your initial consultation.

During Your Initial Consultation

Dr. Mueller will meet with you to listen to your description of the pertinent issues and problems, and he will then perform a focused physical examination to further evaluate any surgical conditions.  Then, he will review with you all of your pertinent lab results and imaging studies.  If any labs, imaging studies, or specialist referrals are required, these will be ordered.  Dr. Mueller will then discuss your diagnosis and work with you to develop a treatment plan.  If Dr. Mueller recommends a surgical procedure, then he will provide you a thorough explanation regarding the details of the surgery, expected recovery, and any risks.  Most importantly, at the conclusion of your visit, Dr. Mueller will answer all of your questions and provide you with contact numbers to reach him with future questions.

After Your Consultation

If Dr. Mueller recommends surgery during your consultation and you wish to proceed with surgery, you will meet with his nurse, Angie, to schedule a future date for surgery.  Angie will provide you with detailed instructions.  If you are not ready to schedule surgery at that time, you will be provided a contact number to reach Angie to schedule surgery in the future.
