Care Philosophy

I like that in orthopedics, people get better. I enjoy sports and working with athletes. I enjoy what I do because I like helping people walk with less pain. I like improving my patients' lives by relieving the pain and disability of arthritis through both operative and non-operative treatment plans. Our philosophy in our office is that people still want to see and spend time with their doctor. I try to give everyone the time and attention they need to address all questions and concerns.

in Scottsdale, AZ |
Dr. Miller came thru for me in a pinch. My original surgeon cxld on my Dec 27th surgery. So as anyone using insurance knows I was left with 4 days to get surgery or start from scratch with my insurance deductible. Dr. Miller understood the situation and got me in on the 30th, and I left on the 31st. I had 2 hip surgeries. Dr Miller's surgery had no complications, was a breeze, and healed quicker than expected. His professionalism and demeanor were excellent and I truly trust him.

Dr. Miller saved my right arm from being amputated! A series of surgeries helped to regain control and fillings on my fingers and fuse and relocate the damaged nerves.Is a total blessing to know him. Thank you Dr. Miller.

Dr Miller did my hip revision surgery, all things could not have gone better or had a better result! Go to him and relax.

I had a major surgery and wasn't very pleasant in the beginning. Dr. Miller explained things to me and took the time to make sure that I understood. I was in much pain when we met, but he was always cool when I was grumpy. He made me feel at ease with his care and his instructions. I was concerned about having an ugly scar, even that wasn't the case. I did exactly what I was told to do and I'm honored to have had Dr. Miller taking care of me. He is among the best doctors to have in your corner.

I have been a patient of Dr. Miller's for 12 years. He was able and willing to help me with a painful chronic condition at least 5 doctors had told me that I just needed to live with Dr. Miller gave me back my life 12 years ago. I will never see another hip or knee surgeon. He is awesome!
