I was very appreciative of the effort to get me in quickly due to the issues I was having. Dr Mills is a very professional man yet explains thing in a way that anyone can understand w/o being condescending. Courtney, his assistant, is very considerate and helpful. Overall, a good experience. Thanks, Rick Sodia

Dr. Mills replaced both of my knees. First one in 2005 and the second in 2013. I’m pleased with both outcomes as I’ve returned to the activities I enjoy. Recently saw him for hip issue. He listened to my concerns , clearly explained x-rays and suggested solutions that did involve surgery.

I would definitely recommend Mark Mills, MD to friends or family needing surgery on there hip or knee. Very skilled surgeon. He also doesn't make you feel rushed and fully addresses your questions. He replaced my hip 5 years ago & recently helped me with another issue.

I just went through my second hip replacement by Dr Mills. If I had another one he would do that, too. As a parent of a child with cystic fibrosis, I have a lot of experience with doctors and hospitals. Dr Mills (and Panorama) are among, if not THE, best I have ever seen. In addition to being extremely thorough and efficient, Dr Mills is personable, courteous and friendly. He not only explains what is going on and what he is going to do in language you can understand, he really listens to you and is responsive to your questions and concerns. He makes you feel he is genuinely interested in your welfare. And if the results of my experience are any indication, he is a pretty good surgeon, too. I cannot recommend him too highly.

Dr. Mills replaced my hip 12.5 years ago. I sometimes forget which hip it is. I run 5K’s at 71 years old. Trust is very important to me, I trust Dr. Mills with my health.
