Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Miller ""I joined Pyramid Health Center in 1994 after completing my Family Practice Residency here in Reno at the UNR Family Medicine Program in 1993. 

I love living and working in Reno. I have been with Pyramid Health Center so long that I often slip and refer to the office as "home." We have a great staff and most of us have been together since before my 17 year old son was born. I think that says a lot for us as a team. Patient care is very important to us and we work together very well.

On a personal note, I knew I wanted to be a doctor since I was in fourth grade. There is no other work that I would rather do. I have a wide range of interests that occupy my life outside of work. My son and I go bowling, hiking, rock hounding, cycling, and swimming as often as we can.

I strongly believe that it is not only important to encourage my patients to live a healthy life style, it is also important for me to live a healthy life myself as well.

I look forward to meeting you if you choose to join us at Pyramid Health Center.""

Dr. Miller is the best family doctor I have ever had.

I been seeing Dr. Miller for several years. She spends time with me and is very personal and professional. If I need something I can call over the phone and she is willing to help out. It is doctors like her that continue to grow their business and make you want to come back. Thank you doctor Miller.

Its hard to believe that I have been a patient of Dr. Melissa Miller for over 25 years. Her commitment to her patients health has kept me coming back. Dr. Miller listens to her patients and not only addresses my issues at that time but makes sure I am on the right track to continue with my excellent overall health. I feel Dr. Miller is one of the few physicians who went into medicine for the right reasons - to take care of people and be a partner in her patients well being.
