This doctor, surgeon, professional and person is exceptional. He has replaced one hip and one knee for me, and I would not want anyone else. A second knee needs attention, and I choose Dr. Mills!

I am sorry to have to write this. I saw Dr. Mills over a period of 5 months. He gave me no solution to my knee pain of bone on bone osteoarthritis even when I was to the point of being in a wheelchair at my appointment with him. Surprisingly he would not do a knee replacement. Went to a different Ortho doctor next week and he immediately scheduled me for a knee replacement. Not good communication from his staff either.

I have been a patient of Dr. mills for over 10 years and he has always made me feel like the most important person in the room. He replaced my left hip three years ago and the surgery and follow up was wonderful. I felt the staff at Panarama was just a phone call away if I had a question. I highly recommend Panarama Orthopedics and Dr. Mills

this is the first time that I've ever start an appointment with to apologize. The first was for being a little behind schedule but the second one was because I had country weeks earlier and seen a PA instead of Dr. Mills as my referral had stipulated. Just a breath of fresh air compared to many other medical provider experiences. Dr. Mills was very engaging, a good listener, and very focused on a correct diagnosis and getting me the help I need. during our time together my trust and confidence in him develop quickly and only increased during the appointment. He was well prepared, knowledgeable, and efficient. I never felt like the appointment was rushed in any way.

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.
