Dr. Miller and his entire Staff are AMAZING!!! Dr. Miller performed 2 major Surgeries on my back/neck within a short 9 weeks of each other and both Surgeries were completely 100% successful and I'm a brand new man!!! The slogan at NeuroSpine is "get your life back" and that's exactly what happened for me, THANK the good Lord and Dr. Miller!!! This man is a very gifted Surgeon and is truly blessed............can't thank Dr. Miller enough for all that he has done for me!!!

I found Dr. Miller to be patient and understanding. He took the time to explain to me exactly what his finding were and the best courses of treatment. I trust his knowledge and advice in going forward. I am confident that with his guidance I will be on a road to recovery very soon.

i am a 75 yr old female with history of back surgeries. Went to Doctor Miller with pain from previous surgery down my legs and in my feet. Dr Miller stated he would go in and open up area for nerves to go down. I went in for surgery in November 2019. He worked on area L1 and S1. I have had constant worse pain plus additional pain sites. Went in for check up assistant ordered MRI and cat scan. Had MRI but scan not ordered. Saw Dr Miller for follow up after MRI. He stated scan should have been ordered and then stated I had come to him complaining about back pain and he took care of that . The pain I had gone to him about was down my legs and into my feet, Not my back. He left me after stating that fact. I have tremendous pain and discomfort much worse than I had previously!! I cannot recommend this physician!

Sharo L foster – May 06, 2020
Dr. Miller is the most arrogant physician I have ever encountered. He dismissed my questions with sighs and a look of disgust on his face. He seemed quite annoyed that a patient dared to ask him a question. I would never recommend this doctor to anyone, nor would I allow him to perform any procedures on me.
