Dr. Muckerman has been my doctor for 25 years and because of him my son was born on his due date and not 2 months early, due to having contractions that I wasn't feeling and gestational diabetes. I have had several procedures done since that due to cysts on my ovaries including a hysterectomy after menopause and have been very happy with all procedures. Dr. Muckerman has always talked to me about all of the procedures and have always trusted his opinion totally. I have recommended him to several women including my own daughters that have had their children delivered by him which they were very happy with too.

I have been going to Dr. Mumtaz for several years for my children. We had two other Dr. before Dr. Mumtaz but I have to say he is the best. He listens even when we as the parents think our observations might be strange, he listens and then helps us understand why either its nothing to worry about or it was a good observation and helps understand things better. Guess what I'm trying to say is like any good doctor he is willing to take time to help his patients.

We were in and out in literally 20 minutes. Paperwork was very minimal even with us being first time patients. The doctor saw us and we felt confident he knew exactly what he was doing. Co-pay was more since not a primary physican but our PCP could not get us in for at least a week so this was a great compromise.

Crossroads Program
Crossroads...the program, staff, kids, and parent group saved our kid's life when no other program, school, outpatient facility, therapist, or MD could. Taught me how to be a better parent and gave me the tools to cope & be happier while our kid recovered from an insane and dangerous ride with drugs and alcohol.

Margaret Juelich Dr
Margaret Juelich recently fitted me for my first hearing aids.She took her time and is extremely professional. She paid close attention to my comments and had to explain a lot of technology that came with my new devices. Offered not only follow-up fittings, but phone calls, is I needed assistance.

I have been a patient of Dr. Muckerman's for twenty years and he is professional and takes the time to answer any questions I have about my health. After exhausting all other options, he performed outpatient surgery on me last fall and I recovered without any complications.

Dr Lischwe was my family physician for years. He is a wonderful physician. I had to change doctors due to my coverage plan, but every year I check to see if he is an option again.

Dr. Richard Christopher Muckerman II, MD
Dr. Muckerman is an excellent surgeon and has great bedside manner. He explains in detail the surgery and then after surgery explains what he did and even shows pictures.

Tips & Advices
Dialysis prolongs life by stepping in to handle the vital tasks managed by the kidneys. If they are functioning properly, the kidneys work to moderate your blood pressure and regulate the levels of salt and potassium in your blood. Dialysis artificially cleans the blood so that the body is able to function normally.
Dialysis comes with many side effects. Some patients on dialysis experience low blood pressure that causes abdominal cramps, shortness of breath, muscle cramps, vomiting, and nausea. Dialysis can cause sleep problems, itching, depression, amyloidosis, anemia, and inflammation of the membrane that surrounds your heart. Also, the site where the fistula is inserted can become blocked or infected.
If you are currently receiving dialysis treatments, it is recommended to  increase intake of high-protein foods, such as meat, fish, poultry, and eggs. Dialysis patients are advised to reduce their intake of foods that are high in salt, potassium, and phosphorus. Replace high-potassium fruits, such as oranges, kiwis, honeydews, and nectarines, with low-phosphorus choices like apples, berries, and plums.
There are two primary types of dialysis treatments. Hemodialysis is the most commonly used type of dialysis, and it involves inserting a fistula or a catheter into a vein for the purpose of filtering your blood. With peritoneal dialysis, a catheter is surgically implanted into the stomach region to achieve the same result. Dialysis can be performed at a treatment center or at home. It may be performed during the daytime, or nocturnally while you are asleep.
The cost of dialysis treatments might be partially covered by medical insurance, and coverage will depend on the limits of your policy. If dialysis is covered, prescriptions given by your doctor to support treatment will also be covered. Medicare is health insurance provided by the federal government, and it typically covers 80 percent of dialysis costs.
