I think Dr. Milek is simply the BEST!! He is compassionate, caring, and experienced. He put me at ease and explained in detail what he would be doing during the procedure. I do all I can to avoid going to the doctor, but I won't hesitate to see him again and highly recommend his services. He has what seems to be missing from so many doctors, a wonderful bed side manner, which can transform an unpleasant experience to one you can smile about!

Had to wait 3 hours after scheduled appointment to see him. When I got to the exam room I found it with blood on the floor, open trash, used exam gloves laying out on counter, dirty cabinets and floor beside blood and smeared reddish substance on floor and exam table and paper covering on table. The exam by Dr. Milek did not involve the reason I was there - that was never addressed. He said I need 3 surgeries on one hand and the other hand was worse but it was never addressed.
