I first visit Dr. Millar. I was kind of nerves but after he sat down and talked with my husband and I he asked me how could he help . He looked at my chart. He tested the nerves in my right leg because I had a stroke. After he tested my nerves in my leg. Gave me another appointment to come and see him for him to do more tests on my leg. I went back to see him on October 26, 2018 and I had my other tested done and he gave me my results the same day. Dr. Millar is a really nice doctor. I recommend

Dr. Benjamin Millar is a kind, calming presence. I find him to be thoughtful and deliberate, an excellent communicator. He follows through to ensure that medication he has prescribed is effective and tolerable. He is a very refined and caring physician. His office team is very well-coordinated and thorough in their planning (they call with reminders, caution you if traffic is slow, etc.). River City Neurology is a fine practice, with high standards in patient care & administration.

I was scheduled to see Dr. Millar's PA but was pleasantly surprised on the day of my appointment that I was seen by Dr. Millar instead. Very good first appointment and I look forward to seeing how the treatment progresses. He took the time to check, explain, and start a course of treatment.

I have been a patient of Dr. Millar for several years. The very first appointment, he put me on a migraine preventive medication that my previous neurologist never mentioned to me. It changed my life. Over the last several years, Dr. Millar has tweaked that medication and now I am on the optimum dose at the optimum times so I very seldom have a migraine. I thank God I found him! My husband now sees him for a completely different issue and so does my mother-in-law. I also refer friends!

I went to his office spent under 5 minutes being examined by him and highly recommend getting a copy of your record. You may be shocked at what is in your permanent record. Mine was filled with false information that he did not even check and then had my medications mixed up accused me of trying to milk the system when i have a declining medical condition a year later. I cant believe how many of these drs are doing this after getting copies. Stand up for yourself and dont leave witout a copy.
