I've been going to Dr. Miller for several years. Never have I felt rushed or dismissed. He listen, asks loads of questions, and remembers from year to year what's going on in your life. So upbeat and helpful. Staff is great too!

Dr Miller and his team impress me as caring and efficient. I wear multi-focal glasses but would like contacts at times. My eyes presented a challenge to find the right pair of contacts, but Dr. Miller and his team patiently trieddifferent options with me and proactively reached out to me on follow ups. The staff even kept an eye out for me regarding insurance. I am extremely pleased!

Efficient, friendly, and thorough! Was able to get an appointment the same day and was treated as if I was an established client! The office is clean and the staff was knowledgeable and not annoyed by my questions. The nurse/assistant wascourteous and professional while the doctor took his time and explained each procedure. I know this is a fantastic Doctor because he had the opportunity to make more money by selling me glasses AND contacts but said I honestly need to just stick with glasses! That is a sign of a good doctor in my book

Dr. Miller himself was excellent. He explained things clearly and viewed the visit as an education opportunity for me. However, a lot of the exams that I normally see done by the Dr. were done by the staff. More importantly, whenI declined to get glasses from the location due to excessive cost, the specialist failed to release her request for insurance to pay for glasses, causing an administrative nightmare that prevented me from getting a new pair for 3 days (my old pair had broken after 2 years of use). Ultimately I had to have Aetna do time-consuming override to get my glasses.

The entire process was professional and enjoyable. I interacted with three individuals - 1) the assistant/technician who worked with me on the paperwork and performed the various tests, 2) the doctor who performed the examination and 3) theoptician who provided information about the lenses and frames. Each one was friendly and efficient. I was provided with all the necessary information and they answered my questions effectively. I came away very satisfied with the entire experience.

Dr. Miller has an excellent 'chairside' manner, and a calming, almost zen-like presence during examinations and discussion. His offices are inviting, imaginative, and low-lit (appreciated by those with sensitive eyes), and my overall patient experience was positive.

The Dr was great!!! Office staff was less than desirable. They never asked me how dark I wanted the transition on my lenses and it is barely noticeable. When I picked up my glasses there was no fitting, they didn't askme if I could see out of them, they never checked for quality or accurateness. Very upsetting! Not sure I'd go back because of the staff. Loved the Dr! If you can get past the staff, the doc is great!!!!

Excellent staff and service. Dr Miller is a very smart guy and very good at what he does. He is not afraid to be brutally honest if he needs to be. The staff was very friendly and fostered an overall invitingatmosphere, better than your average Dr's office. They seem to use the latest technology and even have replaced the dreaded "puff of air" test performed by most eye doctors with a much more pleasant, apparently more accurate machine. I have planned to make this my regular eye doctor.
