Dr. Mills is a very personable doctor who is the best at what he does. I have complete trust and confidence in him and his staff. He performed a partial knee replacement on my right knee in Oct 2017. Played golf 4 weeks after surgery. Have highly recommended him to my closest friends. Will see Dr....more

My first appointment with Dr. Mills was more than I hoped for. He came highly recommended by good friends and I was happy to get an appointment for my knee. He was a good listener and came up with a course of action immediately.
