About Me

I believe in spine restoration.  I have chosen to focus my practice on disc replacement not fusion.  An artificial disc allows me to cure pain associated with a back or neck injury while still maintaining full range of motion. &nb...

If I could give a O I would, If she is so great I would like to be fixed now! 2015&16 major mess ups too many to write, proof, lying, documentation of reports. Leaving her former practice after my 1 yr after recovery and mos off drugs, suffered far worse, her reply its all mustle, I told you, followup, PA. Documented decompression, in detail of 2 decompressions plus on c5-6 & 6-7, that was the worst of my problems It was never done, then being fused c3-7 would mean taking everything out.

I would definitely recommend Dr. Miller to family and friends. Dr. Miller is a fabulous doctor, she has a great bed side manner, explains things thoroughly, is open to questions, and really makes you feel like she cares. She is knowledgeable and gives you all of the options for care, and then is willing to talk thru them all with you to make the best decision for you and your situation. Dr. Miller even personally called me after my surgery to insure that I was doing ok.

I wish I had more than 500 characters to tell you how amazing Dr. Miller is as I could easily fill 500,000. I've seen no less than a dozen neurosurgeons over the past 20 years in different states and she is by far the best!

Customer Service, Environment, Other, Quality, Wait Time I was treated with kindness and compassion as well as made knowledgeable about my specific issues and what the possible surgical options and outcomes may be. Everyone was very kind and full of information, answering all my questions. Dr. Miller is exactly the person you want performing this kind of surgery, she's very zealous about helping people with back and neck issues and works hard to help a people find relief.

I was a patient of Dr. Millers at her previous employment. I have not seen her at her new clinic yet. I hope that I can return to her for further care. I felt that I could trust Dr. Miller and the care she was providing for me was excellent. Thank you!

I had the pleasure of meeting Dr.Miller a little over 2 years ago. Dr. Miller was the 3rd surgeon that I had met with and after the first 5 minutes of speaking with her I knew she was great. She performed an anterior and posterior fusion on April 21, 2016 and I felt great almost immediately afterward. Dr.Miller was there for me every step of the way after surgery. She is a very upfront honest person. She gave me my life back to enjoy with my kids and the pain continues to dissipate.

Dr. Miller has helped me with my Pudendal Nerve issues caused by a fall. First surgery and now maintenance with injections. She continues to impress me with her knowledge and understanding of a subject that few master. Dr. Miller is through, direct and at the same time caring. I would recommend her for any surgery that you are contemplating, knowing that she does top notch work.

I was very apprehensive about surgery, but due to having a physically demanding job, I realized that I could not live with the constant pain that I was experiencing. After speaking with another surgeon, I decided to go with Dr. Miller because she was knowledgeable, caring and had an excellent bedside manner. She and her team took great care of me. I am pleased with the end result, and do not regret my decision to have surgery.

She was the only surgeon that was willing to consider alternatives to fusion of my neck. She was very thorough, took time with me and explained options clearly. Been dealing with neck pain for years, went to a surgeon at Twin Cities Spine and they never offered to replace the disc just to fuse me and I am only 50 years young. I do not want to be fused. Had surgery and am doing great. Returned to work.

Dr. Miller did for me what no one else could. I was in severe pain saw a few doctors and they all gave me a different diagnostic, but none of them help me with my pain. She cares for the patient I'm thankful for meeting her.

Dr. Miller is an OUTSTANDING surgeon. She takes her time to explain everything in detail, is honest about what to expect post operation, and has a great bedside manner/personality. She made me feel very comfortable and helped to reduce my nerves about the surgery. I had the Spinal Cord Stimulator placement last December, and she did an amazing job! I was completely pain free after the surgical pain subsided. The operation was a complete success! Thanks to Dr. Miller!!! AWESOME!!!!

Dr Miller is the best surgeon I had to date. Your overall care and health is her priority! Before seeing her I had 7 back and neck surgery done with other surgeons, she has far exceeded them in every matter from beginning to end. I'm very satisfied with my out come. I highly recommend her and her staff. I cannot say enough about my experience with her.

I had a failed surgery at Midwest Spine with a male doctor, and since he didn't know what to do after the bad surgery he sent me to Dr. Miller. I am graceful with God for allowing me to meet Dr. Miller, she has presented me with a treatment plan that has made my life better. Dr. Miller honesty gave me the guidance I need to recover my life. Dr. Miller is a trustworthy neurosurgeon.

I had a very complicated situation with neck fractures. Doctors and surgeons cannot believe I'm walking due to the severity of my case. Dr. Miller took my case and gave me the confidence I need to go through the journey of recovering my health. Dr. Miller did and excellent job, I am walking, talking, moving thank's to the effort we both put in. Many Doctors were afraid to treat me, but Dr. Miller brought her expertise and was able to provide me with the best care for my case. Thank you Dr. Mille

I had more pain after my surgery, performed by this witch doctor, than I had before meeting her. I followed up with a new doctor after she abandoned me post surgery and he looked at my images and said that she completely hosed up my spine. I have had two surgeries with the new doctor and am finally starting to feel good. SHE SHOULD BE BANNED FROM PRACTICING MEDICINE.
