Dr. Miller's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Miller "Dr. Miller realized even when she was beginning medical school that she wanted to practice medicine with an openness to all approaches that had proven potential to make people healthy. The victim of a car accident, Dr. Miller suffered with pain for two years, at which time a nurse referred her to a physician who practiced acupuncture. After ten visits, she had found results that had eluded her with conventional medicines and physical therapy. Following medical school, she wanted to serve her residency at an institution that would further her knowledge of integrative medicine. She chose the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale. Along with her residency training, she learned acupuncture at UCLA and trained at the University of Arizona, Tucson, under Dr. Andrew Weil, the world-renowned leader and pioneer in the field of integrative medicine. A few years later, when Dr. Miller's husband came to Birmingham to work at UAB, Dr. Miller started her medical practice in Birmingham, meeting her professional goal of integrating scientific and natural approaches to health care for her patients."

Dr Miller is VERY caring toward her patients and takes time to listen and empathize.

I have been going to Dr.Miller for 5 years. She is very personable and cares about her patients. my only beef is I can never get the patient portal to work for me, not sure what the problem is. I live in Homewood and drive all the way out to Trussville to see her. She is not going to pull your problems out of you, you have to tell her and remind her. Note taking is a little bit lack it seems.

Dr Miller is a wonderful and caring dr. She gets to the root of the problem and I love the fact that she prescribes natural herbs vs. prescriptions. She put me on Chinese herbs for menopause and I NEVER had any symptoms. I've been going to her since she's been in Trussvile. Even now that I've moved from the area I still go to her.

Dr MIller is caring and kind and genuinely cares about her patients. She has helped me tremendously in the last six months, often working me into her schedule and calling in meds when needed.

Dr. Miller is an amazing doctor and I wish I had found her sooner. I am 29 and always had problems with my stomach. I had been to different doctors, gotten diagnosed with IBS, and prescribed meds that didn't work. After my first visit with Dr. Miller she got to the root of the problem. I had multiple tests done and realized I had allergies that were creating my stomach problems. No other doctor had thought to give me an allergy test! That is just one example, unfortunately I'm running out of spa

I've been having issues for years. I thought they were thyroid issues. But doctors would test me and say no. They never cared to see if there was anything else wrong. Well Dr. Miller does care to figure it out. She did indeed find out that I do not have a thyroid problem. But instead it was a genetic disorder that I never would have found without all the extra tests that so many people on here are complaining about. Now I know what is wrong. Now I can work towards fixing myself.
