I worked for Dr. Mullins for many years at his Athens Dialysis clinic.
Every single day and every single minute, he kind and caring to his employees and his patients.
Some days he would come back to our area to create games and provide lots of fun for the employees. What a wonderful man and doctor.

Dr. Mullins was my father's doctor many years ago- he was the kindest most caring doctor- we need more doctors like him who truly care for their patients! Prayers for his family during this time.

Dr. Mullins was a kind, and intelligent man. He had such a great sense of humor! I knew I would not only learn something, but would get a moment of comic relief every time I worked with him. He will be missed.

I recall Dr. Mullins as one of the doctors that was assigned to me when I was in the hospital several years ago. He made an impression on me as a relaxed, knowledgeable doctor. His manner was so impressive that I have never forgotten him. He was a GREAT doctor.

Deepest sympathy to all the family. Dr Mullins was always a welcome sight when dealing with a critical patient. He didn't jut bark orders to the nurses but instead would pitch in and help out. He will be remembered and missed.

I enjoyed interacting with Dr Mullins, he was a breath of fresh air with his sunny smile, great sense of humor, practical and philosophical advise. I have learnt a great deal from his wisdom. He has left an indelible mark so will forever live in my memories. -suba
