Meet Clinton Muench

Philosophy of Care

I strive to provide individualized care to each of my patients. When I see a patient for the first time, I take a very detailed, careful history and really listen to their story. I make sure I have all the fine details down. After listening, doing a physical exam and looking at imaging studies, I create an individualized plan. Oftentimes that might be therapy and an injection. Sometimes that might mean surgery. I enjoy being able to get people back to activities they love to do.

Personal Interests
