Dr Miller has been very good to me all during my ordeal. I have an injury that is very rarely seen and had to have surgery. He has been attentive to the care and therapy I'm having to have. I would absolutely refer family and friends to him. Thank you Dr Miller!

Did not feel I was given opportunities to discuss causes, of explaining where the pain was going to and not just the knee...I had a apt at 1:15 and didn't get out til 2:45pm....seeing him in that time frame was maybe 15 mins....still having a lot of pain, hardly sleeping and just came home crying from lack of help I didn't feel I got..was referred by my hand dr who didn't rush the session and gave me time to ask questions...would refer my hand dr 100% but won't refer Dr Miller to anyone.

Benji Miller is a young doctor with little bedside manor. I have a large laceration right above my left ankle the glass went all the way to the bone during all this I also twisted my ankle. I complained about my pain from day one but he refused to help me with my pain discounting it like I was lying. He literally spent about 1 minute in the room with me. A couple weeks later I started physical therapy which is causing much pain and swelling and he still refused to help with the pain. Horrible
