My experience with Dr. Musahl and his team have always been very good. I am very pleased.
I have had nothing but good experiences with this provider. He took what I thought to be the worst thing ever and turned it into no big deal. Without this provider I would not be as healthy as I am today and I will miss him and his entire staff when I am discharged.
Dr. Musahl was very helpful & listened to me with the upmost concern......
Excellent service regarding scheduling appointments; care provider was always interested in seeing me as soon as possible, taking my schedule as a college student into consideration.
excellent help for my pain. Timing was fast and everything was comfortable
I have visited Dr. Musahl on many occasions since 2010, and he has performed 2 surgeries on my right arm. I have a great deal of confidence in him based on the positive results I have experienced over the years. He is a very active person and relates well to my very active lifestyle.
Dr. Volker, Jamie and their team did an amazing job. My ACL surgery was quick and painless. I had a fast recovery and excellent rehab treatment from Meredith and Tom at the UMPC Mario Lemieux Center.
Dr. Musahl took the time to hear my concerns and answer my questions but most importantly, he seemed to be genuine and caring when I know he deals with much more serious issues. I felt my issue was taken seriously and respectfully. Thank you!
Dr. Musahl is awesome!!!!! He is very kind and compassionate.
Dr. Volker Museal was excellent. He has both excellent technical knowledge and excellent interpersonal style. He had all of my information on his computer screen and invited me to view X-rays and MRI data while he explained my condition. In addition, Dr. Museal asked questions so that he could prescribe a rehab program that would fit my lifestyle. I left his office feeling very good about understanding my condition and options for moving forward. Lastly, Volker Museal has positive and hopeful approach, which I believe is an essential part of the doctor / patient relationship.
He is a fabulous surgeon and we had a great experience.
Physician was excellent!!!
Dr Musahl is terrific - very sensitive to my concerns; I was able to get an MRI right away and have an explanation for my symptoms from an injury, a plan and good advice about what to do.

Dr. Musahl and his staff went above and beyond to accommodate our son's needs. We are so thankful...
one of best experiences I have had. Called to make an appt and was able to schedule that week. Did diagnostic testing during visit (MRI) and say MD immediately after to discuss results and determine most appropriate plan of care. Was in OR next day. PA called following day during day off and holiday weekend to confirm I was doing well. Very impressed with care i received!
Dr. Musahl did surgery on my right knee 2011. He and his staff were professionals then and continue to be. That is the main reason why I came back to him regarding my injury to my left knee. He is genuinely concerned about your overall health and well being.
working with Dr Musahl and his staff has been a pleasure. Both in their interactions with me and the way that they have provide me medical attention has been excellent every time. I have recommended them and will continue to do so to my family, friends, and co workers.
Dr. Musahl and his PA Jamie are excellent. I would not go to anyone else.
Loved my doctor and his staff!
I've had 7 surgeries, soon to be 8, under Dr. Mushal's care. He is always very nice and takes the time to explain everything thoroughly. He even went to such lengths as drawing on my leg and using a model knee to talk me through my first surgery, which made me feel more comfortable about the situation. His PA, Jaime is my favorite person in his office. Recently on her day off, she took the time to call me from her home and answer an important question I had. All in all their office is a very nice and pleasant place to be, even when dealing with an unpleasant injury.
the doctor and his staff fully answered my questions and provided further advice that I felt was very professional
I had a great experience, everyone was very helpful!! Md, resident and PA were all awesome! They listened to my concerns and answered all of my questions.
Dr. Mushal is wonderful! He operated on my knee 4 years ago, and is taking care of me, now. He is always caring, professional. He answers all my questions-and calms my fears!!
Dr. Musahl shows a level of care and expertise unparalleled by any healthcare provider my family has ever dealt with. He goes above and beyond to expediate diagnosis, formulate plans, and involve family members in decision making. He responds to email requests and questions almost immediately. It is refreshing and reassuring to have a physician show so much respect and concern for his patients.

I've always been treated very well by all Drs and staff members

Dr. Musahl is a very caring and enthusiastic gentleman. He did my son's acl repair last year and he is doing very well, so when I needed surgery I knew who to contact.
Dr. Volker Mushal is the best surgeon I've ever had.

Dr.Musahl and his staff are very friendly and compassionate made my daughters knee surgery much easier to deal with!!
I received excellent service
Provider was intelligent, sensitive and very careful in my examination. He apologized if there was any discomfort and explained everything he was doing concerning diagnosing a torn rotator cuff.
Dr Musahl and his entire staff were wonderful! Specifically, I was in pain. There was a high degree of cooperation between the PA, the Facility (UPMC SPORTS MEDICINE) director, the person who scheduled my MRI, the physical therapist . I was promptly greeted at the reception desk. They told me what to do when and how.
Dr. Volker and his resident, Daniel March, are an excellent team and provided excellent care and advice.
Dr. Musahl and his PA Jaime are excellent. My son was deathly frightened about surgery. The 2 of them were and continue to be. I would recommend him to anyone. I am glad he was recommended to me. I glad my son had him for a surgeon, I'm not sure anyone else could have handed my son the way he and his PA Jaime did.
I was very pleased with the care I received.
Had a very good visit loved that the doctor pulled no punches straight forward very impress with that
Dr.Musahl is a very good provider I met him last year when I tore my rt. rotator cuff he operated on me and when I hurt my left shoulder I called and made an appointment to see him he is 1 doctor I can trust in he is very honest.

This doctor has replaced both of my shoulders in the past two years. I wish I had another one for him to replace.
Dr Musahl is a very nice man who seems genuinely concerned with caring for patients.
Very competent. Recommended by a colleague and fellow surgeon who had Dr. Mushal as his caregiver - the highest compliment.
The care providers that I saw were friendly and knowledgeable. There was a resident there that I saw first who had some conflicting ideas from the main care provider which was interesting. I wish my main care provider would have expanded further on why he didn't agree with the resident's ideas.
I loved Dr Muschal and his Pa Jamie

My entire experience with Dr. Musahl and his staff has been terrific.
Dr. Mushual is a wonderful, caring, compassionate doctor. I rave to all my family and friends about him.
They accommodated me and got me in the office within 2 hours of calling them. Unheard of these days but not so with Dr. Musahl
I think the care was pretty close to the best possible care available. All members of the staff that assisted me did an excellent job
very happy with the entire visit; everything from intake to checkout very well coordinated
Knowing that I'm to have surgery, the doctor and his staff were very comforting; easing my fear.
Dr. Musahl and his team are the best! There is not enough room to say all the wonderful things about my whole experience. From the x-ray tech, Dr. Musahl's Nurse, His Resident, the aide preparing for the injection and the folks who fitted me for the knee brace - AWESOME! I highly recommend Dr. Musahl!
Dr. Masahl came highly recommended and he was everything we could have expected and much more. He and the resident doctor who worked with him were thorough in their care of my daughter. She had never had a sports injury like this before and their explanation of the diagnosis and recommendation for care going forward was complete and easy to understand. I would recommend him to anyone with a sports injury.
thought a lot of time was spent with me during my visit...felt that i was in very competent hands
Excellent orthopedic surgeon who diagnosed my shoulder pain quickly and decisively, and with a demeanor that gave me confidence in what I was hearing. Also, both he and his PA were very personable and took the time to make me feel at ease and answer my questions in a direct manner. I would definitely recommend this provider to friends and family.
A good doctor who I would recommend to others.
Dr. Musahl is an excellent physician. He takes the time to consider a patient's medical history, and provides thorough explanations for his actions. He is respectful and is a very good listener, a rare quality in a high-ranking surgeon. I could not recommend him more.

Tremendously positive experience every time.
Team Musahl is the best! Dr. Musahl, Jamie and Enjoli have been amazing to work with during my year long treatment and recovery from a meniscus transplant.

Excellent doctor... I was seen 20 minutes before my scheduled appointment!!!!
I went in to see Dr. Musahl to get a second opinion about a complex knee issue. He spent a good amount of time with me and we discussed a variety of options for long term treatment, some of which is very complex. After I did some research at home, I was better able to understand what sort of treatments my knee may need in the future.
open, listened, advised me and allowed me to make decisions yet keep options open
This was my first visit ever to Dr. Musahl and the UPMC Sports Medicine clinic, and I was very impressed and happy with all aspects of my experience.
