Meet Dr. 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. I really like doing surgery. It's fun to make people better if they've tried everything else and they aren't getting better. 

Personal Interests

Spending time with my wife and 3 boys, CrossFit, travel, golf, bowling, hiking and cooking Paleo.
