Her office is very nice. I wasn’t crazy about the wait time and I didn’t like the policy of having a credit card on file, either. I appreciated the electronic check in. There was a discrepancy where ZocDoc said I hada 9:30am appointment and the doctor’s office had me on the schedule for 9:15am. I don’t like to make a bad first impression. Even though I arrived at 9:15am, it was with the goal of being a little early so I could do any paperwork before my appointment time. Dr. Miles is very personable and addressed all of my questions. Her aesthetician is very nice, too. I will be back.

Dr. Miles was extremely professional, knowledgeable, and easy to talk with. It was my annual skin check - which is not the most comfortable way to meet someone! Dr. Miles and her staff made me feel as comfortable as possible evenin the awkward situation. Her office is very clean and has the latest equipment. There was a bit of a wait to be seen, but I am okay with that considering I didn't feel rushed at all during my time with her. She really listened to my questions/concerns and took the time to talk through her thoughts. I'm more than willing to wait a little for care of this level.

Dr. Miles' staff are professional, informed, personable. The space is lovely and soothing. I drive from Washington, D.C., and since the traffic is light and parking is accessible, the drive takes less time than driving downtown. Most importantly,I feel that Dr. Miles is a professional and a healer with a focus on excellence. I recommend her to all of my friends and family.

I showed up to the appointment on time but still had to wait in excess of thirty minutes for my appointment. In an age where doctors have signage indicating they can charge patients for being late, there should be an effortto have appointments be on time. While this is nearly impossible with patients who **are** late and then cause everything to back up, at the very least the receptionist should indicate that there is a wait--and apologize. Mercifully, this is an annual appointment but if I had to visit this practice regularly, I would definitely take this into consideration.

Dr. Miles was super informative and patient, and her assistants were very kind also. The front desk staff were helpful and welcoming. I would definitely recommend friends here. The only negative for me was waiting about 10-15 minutes past myscheduled appointment time, but that’s not a big deal at all. Great experience overall!

I love the space and energy when you enter the office. The staff is extremely professional, and I felt as if I was in the hands of an experienced healer, who wanted to explore and understand the issue, and not justcheck a box and move to the next patient. I did not mind waiting, because I felt like a quality experience. Most importantly, I began to experience progress within a few weeks of her prescribed treatment.

Came in to see Dr. Miles for eczema and acne and both conditions have improved greatly since my first visit. She's very pleasant and knowledgeable on both conditions. She usually has an assistant that takes care of the medications in termsof telling you how to use the medications she prescribes and such. For all my visits so far, she has spent just enough time to inspect, diagnose, recommend, or reaffirm course of treatment. The only downside for now is the distance I travel to see her.

I enjoyed meeting Dr. Miles. She was very courteous, friendly, and knowledgeable of the concerns I brought to her. She answered all my questions and even provided some alternative procedures/treatments that could possibly help resolve oralleviate my condition (but she was careful to acknowledge that those alternative options may not work as well). Her nurse was equally courteous. I would give my visit with her an A+, Excellent, 5 stars. On the other hand, her front desk staff was NOT A+. Please be advised that Dr. Miles has a policy in her office that requires every patient to leave a card on file so her office can charge you a fee for any appointments you may miss or arrive late or balances left from your health insurance. I understand the policy but it should not be requested of any new patients. I believe the fee should be applied to any patients that have violated the policy. To apply it to every new patient is a huge turn-off especially with an unfriendly front desk staff that gives you an ugly look if you refuse to leave your credit card. Even with this policy, I would still recommend Dr. Miles.

Loved the doctor and the doctor's tech. Wait time was around 40 minutes, so a little more than I wanted but it's a doctor's office. Only small issue I had was the two ladies working up front. Did not greet meor anyone else I saw come in and sign the clipboard which was literally right in front of them. Just came off kind of rude. Other then that I definitely recommend this doctor! Super personable and helpful.
