I believe in a considerate and professional approach to clients who seek an evaluation for male infertility. My laboratory works closely with physicians who are experts in male and female reproductive health to offer the best possible care to infertile couples.

Dr. Muller completed his undergraduate and master’s training in zoology and embryology at the University of Colorado, Boulder. He received his PhD degree in reproductive endocrinology from the University of California, Berkeley. He is certified through the American Board of Bioanalysis as a Director of High Complexity Laboratories. He is the Director of the Male Fertility Laboratory.

Dr. Muller and his staff frequently analyze conditions that include male infertility, vasectomy check, azoospermia, retrograde ejaculation. Tests and procedures performed by his laboratory include semen analysis, sperm morphology, semen reactive oxygen testing, sperm DNA fragmentation testing (COMET), fine-needle aspirate mapping of the testes, preparation of sperm from testicular aspiration (TESA), testicular extraction (TESE), or epididymal sperm aspiration (PESA/MESA).

Dr. Muller’s background in reproductive biology and embryology forms the foundation of his research interests. He mentors students and trainees in laboratory studies and clinical trials. He teaches Microscopic Anatomy (Histology) to first-year medical students.
