Dr. Patrick Muehlberger
I am blessed to marry my interest in science with the opportunity to help others as an emergency physician. I was attracted to the Inwood/Full Spectrum group by the outstanding group of founding physicians, with whom I had the privilege of serving in the military, and who are among the most talented physicians I have known in 15+ years of practicing medicine. As owner operators, we are excited to be able to directly control all aspects of emergency care, including laboratory, imaging, nursing, pharmacy, and, of course, physicians, to create the kind of personalized, comfortable, high quality experience we know emergency medicine can be, and that we would want for our own families. In my free time, I enjoy taking walks with my wife along the nature trails in our Rogers Ranch neighborhood or along the nearby Salado Creek trail. Living nearby, I like the opportunity to commute to work by bicycle. I volunteer as a team manager and unofficial team doc for our three boys’ soccer club, the Buffalos Football Club. We enjoy teaching a kindergarten Sunday class together as a family at our church, Oak Hills Church.
