    in Los Angeles, CA |
    Dr Miller was referred to me by the two ophthalmologists I asked. Small wonder- he is the top cataract surgeon at Jules Stein. (Of course that means a long wait for an appointment). So I was confident that he was a great surgeon and his protocol is extremely professional (complete with informative videos) But what surprised me was his warmth and how much he cared. I had other eye problems besides my need for cataract surgery and he addressed them an offered to go out of his way to help.
    in North Hollywood, CA |
    I had lens replacement surgery on both eyes due to cataracts performed by Dr. Miller. I could not be happier with the results and the excellent care and that was provided to me by Dr. Miller and his fantastic staff.
