Dr Milligan removed a pituitary tumor for me almost 5 years ago. He continues to monitor my condition. He is everything you want in a doctor: smart and well educated, kind, and he makes you feel like you are his only patient. He has left Saint Luke’s and it is a grievous loss to that hospital.

Dr Milligan is my 2nd Neurosurgeon. He is AMAZING! He takes the time to answer all questions my spouse & i have in terms that we understand. When looking at my scans on the computer, he goes slowly & then shows on himself what we're looking at. He also uses analogies that makes things make sense. My last NS put fear into our minds but Dr Milligan put ALL of those fears to rest. AND he found a whole new issue when Diagnostic Imagining reported things didn't change!! I'm so grateful he's here!!

My wife and I went to see Doctor Milligan on April 5th (she has a brain tumor) and he spent 45min. with us discussing what it is and what his game plan is. As you can imagine we are very scared. Pattie his physicians assistant was great. You can tell he is a very caring man and his staff was top notch. After leaving his office we felt much better.

My experience with Dr. Milligan has been WONDERFUL! He took EXCELLENT care of me this past year. I had a very tedious, scary surgery the beginning of May and I couldn't have been in better hands. He Listens and addresses all concerns, he is compassionate, caring, and very thorough. EXCELLENT Dr. And the nurse practitioner in his office (Patti) is Wonderful too! The Saint-Luke's motto stands correct. "The best place to get care, and the best place to give care".

I've only had 1 visit so far with Dr. Milligan and I must say that I'm in good hands. For the first time ever as a patient I felt he put my questions, concerns, and needs as a priority. He even walked me to scheduling to ensure his staff is on top of everything (which I'm pretty sure they are). I really enjoy how he explains, demonstrate, and just his overall personality made me feel safe and respected as a patient.
