Verified Patient Reviews
Overall disappointed and a bit bewildered by this consultation - Dr Miller spent nearly as much time telling jokes at the end of my consultation as he did testing my range of motion and abilities during his exam. He seemed rushed during the appointment - I came in for two issues that have been dogging me for a while and he asked few questions about my ailments, relying heavily instead on the information provided in the lengthy questionnaire filled out at check in. Nearly every other doctor I've ever seen has taken 10 seconds to introduce themselves as a formality but I didn't even get that courtesy. I guess the upshot is that I was in and out quickly?
He and his staff were so welcoming and professional! Great patient experience!
Dr. Miller quickly diagnosed an issue that I was having with my hand. Then he told a few jokes. A pretty entertaining visit! But jokes aside, he struck me as an experienced, thoughtful physician.
Gary and his staff were a little too comfortable making comments about my scoliosis. I’m not a doctor but I doubt pointing out “rib hump” is necessary let alone a technical term. The man performing my x-rays was also a little too excited about my abnormal spine. I felt like I should have pitched a tent and charged admission to the circus.
Dr. Gary Miller is very thorough and professional. He performed my ankle surgery in 2011, so I had no doubts about his skill set. Would definitely recommend.
Dr. Miller has provided us excellent care over the several years we have been seeing him. He is very efficient, using a series of questions that the patient responds to in advance. He is methodical, providing a thorough checkup. He explains his diagnosis and treatment options. He does not push surgery, he explains pros and cons of treatment options. He makes sure that he understands patient preferences and lets the patient provide clear input into treatment. We are comfortable with him. In addition, it is easy to make an appointment online, and to fill out the questionnaire online if preferred. His office staff is friendly and easy to work with. They return calls if you leave a message and remember you from one visit to the next.
Dr. Miller is a kind doctor ho really listens and offers realistic treatment choices that suit the patient.
Bit of an odd doctor. Not very warm, and a quirky personality. Very knowledgable however.
